The Day's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: Get this: I have a badge for my job as a state mortgage examiner and if I flash it real fast at restaurants they give me the police discount!! Awesome, right?

Answer: Not awesome, and if you get caught, you can be cited for “impersonating an officer” and possibly lose your job. (ABQ Journal, State Worker Busted for 'Police Discount’)

2) Question: I'm editor of my law school's Law Review. It is so hard rejecting professors' submissions. I feel so guilty! What is the best way to break the news to them?

Answer: You are in luck, as the PrawfsBlawg recently issued a specific, point-by-point method by which professors would prefer to have their proposed articles rejected. (PrawfsBlawg, Dear Law Review Editors: How to Reject Me)

3) Question: I want to buy a switchblade but I hear they are illegal in my home state of Maine. Is that correct?

Answer: Yes, but let me ask you: How many arms do you have? Earlier this month, Maine lawmakers  approved legalizing switchblades for people with one arm, to eliminate the need for one-armed people to open folding knives with their teeth in emergencies. (Reuters, Maine legalizing switchblades for one-armed people) (via Turley)
