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 political candidiate and I'm headed into an important debate. Can you give me a quick primer on the separation of church and state?

Answer: I'm sorry, I don't have time for that right now. But don't worry, I'm sure it won't come up in the debate. (Above the Law, Christine O’Donnell Asks: ‘Where in the Constitution Is Separation of Church and State’?)

2) Question: Why is there a calimari ring on top of my hamburger? Or is that an onion ring?

Answer: I am extremely sorry to be the one to tell you that you may be looking at neither calimari nor an onion ring. There may be a nice legal settlement in your future, though. (Consumerist, Man Settles With Burger King Over Used Condom In Whopper)

3) Question: I'm a lawyer and also a party to a lawsuit. The court keeps e-mailing me orders demanding that I produce this record or that record. How about I just block the court's e-mail address on my computer and then I won't receive any of this stuff??

Answer: That is a really bad idea, which could lead to you being suspended from the practice of law. (Legal Profession Blog, E-Mail From Court Blocked, Attorney Sanctioned)
