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've been watching the Raj Rajaratnam/Galleon insider trading case like a hawk. There's no way he is going to be convicted. In fact, I'd say there was at best a 25 percent chance of a conviction. How can I profit on this?

Answer: If you are willing to put your money where your mouth is, and you are correct, you could make a bundle by placing a wager on Intrade where the current betting line is 94 percent in favor of a conviction. (Intrade, Raj Rajaratnam to be found guilty of at least one count of insider trading is 94% probable)

2) Question: I just painted my kitchen with some "odorless" Benjamin Moore Natura paint. And yet my house now stinks so badly that I can't even stay in my home. How can I profit on this?

Answer: Perhaps you would like to join a class action lawsuit filed by your fellow citizens who were also surprised to have a smelly house? (Consumerist, Lawsuit: Benjamin Moore's Odorless Paint Actually Quite Stinky)

3) Question: I've been reading my ex-wife's highly entertaining blog about her adventures during the months she's been living on her boyfriend’s sailboat in the Caribbean. I'm paying her alimony -- can I use this blog to reduce my payments?

Answer: Maybe so, as this blog evidence may demonstrate that your ex-wife is now co-habitating with someone else. (Internet Cases, Blogging ex-wife gets alimony cut)
