Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I'm a mother. Another child spit on my child at school. What is the proper response? I'm contemplating maybe throwing back a 40-ounce malt liquor and heading into the elementary school with a sword. Too much?

Do you really even need to ask? Way too much. Geez. (CBS News, Cops: Boozed-Up Mom Waves Sword at School)

2) Question: I'm a 39-year-old law student who went back to school after a prior career. I'm worried that law firms will view me as too old and not want to hire me. Thoughts?

Answer: 39? Ha! You are just a pup. Alice Thomas, a third-year law student, is twice your age and she's already got a job lined up. Keep the faith, Junior.(The Sacramento Bee, 79-Year-Old Earns Degree From McGeorge School of Law) (via Bitter Lawyer)

This German guy just won an Olympic silver medal in the luge, and I asked him if we could get a photo of him biting into his medal at the presentation ceremony. He did it and, wouldn't you know it, he broke his front tooth biting the medal. Do I have any exposure here? How was I supposed to know?

Answer: I think this may be unprecedented. The blogosphere has no answer for you, but he's the one who decided to chomp on a piece of silver. I think you're safe. (, Winter Olympics Luge Athlete David Moeller Breaks Tooth on Medal)
