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'm an attorney, and I just entered into a lease that allows me to quarry stone from the lessor's land for a fee. However, a dispute has now arisen and --

Answer: Stop. Just stop it right now, counsel, as you are causing me to have nasty flashbacks to Property class in law school. There is no reason for you to be entering a lease that lets you "quarry stone." That will only cause trouble. Thank you. (Legal Profession Blog, Between A Rock And A Hard Place)

Answer: Neither. Under Sec. 15-38 of James City County law, "False registration by guests" is prohibited by law. (Legal Juice, Apparently No Celebrities Visit This Virginia County)

3) Question: I'm a female motorist. A male police officer just wrote me a speeding ticket, then handed me his cell number and offered to "work something out." Is this some kind of new program?

Answer: Doubtful. Sometimes officers will promise to help you get a ticket dismissed in exchange for sex. But that is "receiving a bribe" and can land the officer in jail. (AP, Ticket Dismissal for Sex Lands Ex-Cop in Prison)
