Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: This guy just approached me and asked, "Do you bang?" Huh? What is the right answer to this question -- Yes? No?

Answer: Neither. Run! (California Appellate Report, Davis v. Superior Court (Cal. Ct. App. - July 22, 2010)

2) Question: My teenage buddies want me to go "ding-dong-ditching" with them (ringing neighbors doorbells and running away)? I know it's an annoyance to the homeowners but, I mean, what's the worst that could happen to me?

Answer: One possibility: An adult could (allegedly) chase you down, tackle you on the asphalt roadway, drag you back inside his house with your arms pinioned behind your back, force you to sit on the floor and tell you he is going to kill you if you try to leave. (Times Union, Folk Hero or Aggressor) (via Legal Juice)


3) Question: I'm a 26-year-old mother of two. Someone yanked down my halter top in a bar and now I'm the unwitting star of "Girls Gone Wild: Sorority Orgy." I'm going to get rich off a lawsuit, right?

Answer: Did you dance for the cameraman at all before someone yanked down your shirt? If so, you may be out of luck. (OnPointNews, Jury Goes 'Wild' in Woman's Privacy Case Over Video)
