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 just wanted to tell you that your recent Burning Legal Answer stating that if you urinate in the aisle of an aircraft you will be charged with indecent exposure and kicked off the U.S. ski team is all wrong. Granted, I am a famous actor (and not a skier), but I just urinated in the aisle of a plane and nobody did a damn thing other than ask me to get off of the plane. So get your facts straight.

Answer: I stand corrected. Until further notice it is hereby OK for famous actors to urinate in the aisle of an aircraft. (People, Gérard Depardieu Relieves Himself in Plane Cabin: Report)

2) Question: I work the security desk at a public art gallery. My boss just gave me a photo of a person who he says "may not come in under any circumstances," as mandated by a court order. Huh? I thought "public" meant anyone could come in?

Answer: "Public" normally does mean anyone can come in, but sometimes when people are known to have physically attacked paintings in a gallery, they can be banned from returning. (The Smoking Gun, Crazed D.C. Art Critic Strikes Museum Again)

3) Question: I cannot understand the legal mumbo-jumbo in the Facebook Terms of Service at all. Can someone translate it into "Bro Speak" for me?

Answer: No problem. (SlacktoryThe Entire Facebook Terms of Service in Bro Speak) (contains some curse words)
