Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: OMG, my husband just got shot by a fox hunter! He has an injured leg. Do we have any claims available to us here? Wait. What's that honey? OK, sorry, correction: he just got shot by an actual fox. Same question, though.

Answer: Bad fox!! Bad!!! And I see no viable claims against woodland creatures, sorry.  (Reuters, Fox shoots man)

2) Question: I just got sworn in as governor of my state. But instead of swearing that I'd "defend" the Constitution, I accidentally stated that I swore to "offend" the Constitution. D'oh!!! Am I the governor now or do I need to do this over again?

Answer: If Oklahoma law is any guide, it looks like you became governor regardless of your slip of the tongue.  (AP, Gov. Flubs, Says She'll "Offend" Constitution)

3) Question: I figured out that if I push the buttons on a particular slot machine in a certain sequence, it causes the slot machine to display false double jackpots. Will it be a problem if I go around the world exploiting this glitch and collecting millions of dollars?

Answer: When you get caught, yes. Then you may face 650 felony counts. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Swissvale man accused in casino thefts arrested by federal agents) (via Consumerist)
