Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My "friend" just gave me a Sharper Image gift card as a birthday present. Sharper Image?! Didn't that place go bankrupt years ago? What am I supposed to do with this card?

Answer: Yes, Sharper Image stopped accepting gift cards right before it declared bankruptcy in 2008, but thanks to a class action you can use your newly acquired card to file a claim to get a few dollars back. Congratulations, you are now a class action plaintiff! (Consumerist, Still Have A Sharper Image Gift Card? It Might Actually Be Worth Something)

2) Question: Not that I can even throw or catch a football, but can you direct me to any research on the issue of whether playing collegiate/pro football or going to law school would take a more substantial long-term toll on me?

Answer: Of course. (Policymic, How Law School Resembles The NFL Draft) (via Above the Law)

3) Question: I'm a police officer. I just pulled a woman over for talking on her cell phone while driving, but she won't give me her license because she claims to be from another world. She told me flat-out: "Your laws and penalties don't apply to me. I'm not accepting them, I'm sorry, I must go, thank you." This was not covered by the training. How should I proceed?

Answer: There are certain self-styled witches who believe they are not subject to earthly laws, but this is for the judge to decide, not you. (Law and Magic Blog, Pagan Priestess Says Local Laws Don't Apply; Judge Disagrees)
