Tuesday'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 30-year-old woman and recently got into an argument with my mother-in-law. Things got heated and she ripped one of my body parts completely off of my body (my right nipple).  Now what?

Answer: (a) Go to the hospital; and (b) as you've probably deduced, ripping body parts off of other people is a crime. Your mother-in-law may face charges for that. (Legal Juice, That Has GOT To Hurt)

2) Question: I'm checking out my house on Google Street View and I see that the image shows my unmentionables hanging on a clothesline! Can I sue?

Answer: That seems like a very tough case to win, but a similar case is being litigated now in Japan. Stay tuned.  (The Telegraph, Japanese woman sues Google for displaying images of underwear)

3) Question: I'm a prosecutor. We're trying to go to trial against a man for marijuana possession but nearly all of the 27 possible jurors told the judge during the jury selection process that there was no way they would convict anybody of having a couple of buds of marijuana. Can they do that? What are we supposed to do now?

Answer: Time for a plea bargain! (AP, Would-Be Jurors Stage 'Mutiny' in Marijuana Case)
