Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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


1) Question: Why are these guys from Unilever hanging around outside my house?

Answer: Congratulations! You must have won a prize by buying a lucky box of Mr. Clean detergent. As the company boasts, its surveillance teams use GPS tracking devices placed in boxes of detergent to track you down and “they may get to your house as soon as you do.” (Turley, Mr. Clean Knows Where You Live: Company Adds GPS Trackers to Boxes of Detergent)

2) Question: The power company's wind turbines near my home are so loud they are giving me headaches and nausea. What can I do?

Answer: If you will just zip it and stop complaining, the power company may give you $5,000. (Consumerist, Utility Offering Oregon Residents $5,000 to Not Complain About Wind Turbine Noise)

3) Question: Our law school keeps finishing just a hair out of first place in the U.S. News rankings. What can we do to finally make the leap and place first?

Answer: It looks like a check for $350 million would put you over the top. (Legal Profession Blog, Can Stanford Be #1 in the US News Rankings? The Data)
