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: I realllllly need to use the bathroom before this flight lands. What is wrong with this airplane's bathroom door? Am I going to need to bash through it with my shoulder to get it to open? And why are all these people screaming at me in a foreign language?

Answer: Stop what you are doing immediately and make sure that is the door to the bathroom, not the cockpit. (AP, Air marshal: Suspect tried to open cockpit door)

2) Question: I'm a new attorney. The judge just compared my client's discovery responses to “a standup comic who delivers the punch-lines of his jokes first” and “a plane with landing gear that deploys just after touchdown.” That's good, right?

Answer: Sorry, not good. Nor is "a discovery abuse so extreme as to be literally unheard of in this Court." (The BLT: The Blog of Legal Times, Judge Accuses D.C. of Discovery Violation 'So Extreme As To Be Literally Unheard Of')

3) Question: This is an outrage! The county allowed a road in my neighborhhod to be called Sex Change Street! How am I supposed to drive down this street with my children!?! To whom do I address my strongly worded letter complaining about this?

Answer: Is that you, Sean Connery? Calm down and look closer, sir.  Could the road possibly be called South Exchange Street ("S. Exchange Street")? (FAIL Blog, Street Name FAIL)
