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: We are going to do some mouse racing at our bar! People can bet a buck or two on which mouse will finish the course first. Any health code considerations we should keep in mind?

Answer: Probably. But you should also know that some jurisdictions will consider your mouse races to be illegal gambling. (, Iowa bar owners ticketed over illegal mouse racing) (via Lowering the Bar)

2) Question: I finally have 100,000 frequent flier miles -- enough for two round-trip tickets between New York and London! Are there any other fees I should be aware of before I cash these in?

Answer: Yes, you'll need an additional $530 per ticket to cover taxes, fees and the airline's $350 per ticket fuel surcharge. (New York Times, Fees Erase the 'Free' From Frequent Flier Awards)

3) Question: I was trying on diamond rings today when the ring became stuck on my hand. Now I've been in the emergency room for hours while the medical staff tries to get this ring off my finger! Now what?

Answer: Have you considered suing the jewelry store? (New York Post, Lawsuit has painful ring to it) (via Consumerist)
