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: Why is this rent-a-cop at the Minnesota Twins stadium trying to tell me I can't kiss my same-sex girlfriend while I'm here watching a baseball game?

Answer: Ten Commandments violation. (Bad Lawyer, Ten Commandments Prohibits Lezzy Kissing at Minnesota Twins Stadium)

2) Question: I just received a $100,000 deposit in my bank account that was mistakenly sent to me by the IRS. They don't even owe me any money! W00t!! What should I spend it on? My student loans, maybe?

Answer: Maybe not, as doing so could get you charged with a felony count of grand theft by misappropriation of lost property. (Consumerist, IRS Gives $110,000 To Wrong Guy, Now He's In Jail)

3) Question: We have a helper in our home to assist with my ailing wife. Among other things, the helper alerts my wife when someone is at the door, as my wife has a hearing problem. But today, the state Game Commission raided our home and seized our helper. Can it do that?

Answer: Is your helper a monkey? If so, you should know that state Game Commissions rarely grant permits for monkeys because they can carry diseases potentially fatal to humans. (Associated Press, Terminal cancer patient wants seized monkey back)
