Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I own a store where everything is free. That's right -- free. We charge people $2 to drop things off here and "customers" can take whaever they want -- free! So why would anyone break into our store at night through a window when they could walk through the front door in the morning and take whatever they want -- for free?

Answer: Um... Uh... Um... Good question.  (CBC News, Thieves target Edmonton free store)

2) Question: My good-for-nothing fiance just dumped me four days before the wedding! I've spent almost $95,000 on this wedding. Can I recover that from him?

Answer: That question is being tested right now in a Chicago court under theories of "breach of promise to marry" and "intentional infliction of emotional distress." Stay tuned! (Chicago Sun-Times, Bride sues runaway groom)

Lightning 3) Question: I drive a red race car with a yellow number 95 on it. Did Pixar's Cars misappropriate the likeness of my car?

Answer: Nope!  (THR, Esq., Appeals Court: Pixar Didn't Steal Lightning McQueen for 'Cars')
