Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I need a divorce but I really don't feel like spending much time with the lawyers. Can't I just do this all on my iPhone?

Answer: Not quite, but the new DivorceApps will get you started. (LawSites, Getting Divorced? Now There are Apps Even for That)

2) Question: So I bought my daughter a new inflatable pool based on the "actual size" ad showing three kids happily playing and splashing together. Can I get summary judgment against the maker of the pool based on the photo below?


Answer: Judge Carton says your motion for summary judgment is GRANTED. (FAIL Blog, Actual Size Fail)

3) Question: I'm a lawyer trying to visit my client in prison. First the guards wouldn't let me in because the wire in my bra set off the metal detector. So I went into the bathroom and took off the bra, and now they won't let me in because going bra-less is against prison dress code guidelines. Now what? I can't work under these conditions!

Answer: Don't worry. The public defender's office reports that this matter, "while regrettable and unfortunate, appears to be an aberration." The warden says it won't happen again. (Miami Herald, Wrong bra, no bra: Jail bars lawyer)
