Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I'm a county supervisor in Southern California. We're tired of the high taxes, inadequate schools and border issues we're now facing. Can my county and the others in Southern California secede from the state and form our own state of South California?

Answer: You can try but it looks like this will not be easy. And make sure you line up a water supply before you pull the trigger on this. (The Volokh Conspiracy, California Dreamin' of Secession)

2) Question: Is this happening? Are my three friends and I actually being carjacked by an octogenarian woman with a large handgun?

Answer: Sometimes grannies will pull out a handgun and order a car full of young men to get out of their car because the granny wrongly thinks it his her own car that the men are seated in. Sorry, sonny! (Legal Antics, A Senior Moment)

3) Question: Why is it so hot in my house? Yes, it is summer here in Chicago but this is ridiculous!

Answer: Are you in the Chatham neighborhood of Chicago? If so, go take a look at where your central air conditioning unit sits on your lot-- or used to sit. There have been a rash of incidents lately where thieves have gone into people's back yards or crawled onto rooftops to steal entire central AC units. You might consider putting a cage with three locks around your new unit when you replace the missing one -- that's what other people are doing. (CBS, Thieves In Chatham Targeting Air Conditioners)
