Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: To save money, we replaced court reporters in our courthouse with a new videotape system. We just learned that there was a three-month period of time when this videotape system failed to record any audio during trials and other proceedings. Is this going to be a problem?

Answer: Big problem!! (Courier-Journal, Jefferson County court-video failures cause trials, hearings to be lost) (via Bad Lawyer)

100mph 2) Question: Why are these police pulling me over? What part of, "I'm driving 100 mph so that my car will dry off after a car wash," do they not understand?

Answer: The police would prefer it if you tried drying your car off at the speed limit of 50 mph.  (Turley, Getting That Windblown Look: Illinois Man Drives 100 Miles an Hour To Dry Off Car)

3) Question: I need to drive 100 mph to dry my car off after a car wash, but last time I tried this police arrested me for exceeding the 50 mph limit. Any ideas?

Answer: Are you in Nevada? If so, you may soon be able to pay $25 for the right to drive up to 90 mph for a period of 24 hours. Would 90 mph get the job done? (AP, Nevada candidate touts speedy fix to budget crisis)
