Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: Our state government is in a budget dispute and all non-essential state employees will not be getting paid. I'm the governor's housekeeper -- am I "essential?"

Answer: Of course! And tell the governor's chef not to worry, either. (The Associated Press, Row over who's still paid in Minnesota shutdown)

2) Question: I saw your post about the intoxicated woman who had a sober friend drive her and still was charged with the crime of "public intoxication" when the car was pulled over for a burnt-out light on the license plate. I'm a bit tipsy right now myself -- I be charged with anything if I have my 14-year-old (unlicensed) son drive me to a liquor store?

Answer: You would think so, but in some places this merely results in a citation for allowing your underage son to drive without a license. (Bad Lawyer, We're Drunk, But We Aren't Driving, Officer, um Doesn't Work)

3) Question: I'm a waiter an unemployed actor. Are there any opportunities in the legal sector that I should be pursuing?

Answer: Check out Actors-at-Law. They hire professional actors to serve as deposition readers at trial in "roles" such as doctors, surgeons, engineers, police officers and nurses. (PrawfsBlawg, Something new under the sun: Actors for hire to read depositions)
