Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

Rhino 1) Question:  Ecko promised that any customers who got a permanent tattoo of its logo inked on their bodies would get a 20 percent discount for life. So, now I have the Ecko rhino tattooed on my forearm! I get 20 percent off the sale price, right?

Answer: You wish! The Ecko tattoo offer "may not be combined with any other offers." (ShopEcko, Get a Tattoo and Get 20% Off For Life)

2) Question: I work full time and go to school full time, and I'm a single parent. I didn't have time to write my college term paper so I "outsourced" that task to a term paper-writing company that promised to deliver me a paper in four days. Four days later ... no paper has arrived! Can I file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau?

Answer: You can, and probably will, but are you sure you have completely thought through this "cheaters reporting cheaters" strategy? (Free Republic, Term paper company irks profs, students) (via Turley)

3) Question: Yes, I did call the judge a four-letter word starting with "c" and rhyming with "hunt," but what about the First Amendment?  I mean, this was "not a statement of fact, but rather an idea or an opinion that is incapable of being proved false ... nothing more than emotive language designed to convey disgust, disdain, and loathing -- the essence of subjective opinion."  Right?

Answer: Wrong!  (Legal Profession Blog, Gender-Based Epithet Draws Censure)
