Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I was just struck in the head violently by an airborne turtle, causing me, in my opinion, more pain and damages than anyone has ever suffered in the history of American jurisprudence. What is the record for damages sought in a case, because my damages request will be at least one dollar more.

Answer: $239 decillion. (Bitter Lawyer, 6 of the Biggest and Baddest Damage Claims Ever)

2) Question: I'm a doctor. My patient complains of extreme pain after being struck in the head violently by an airborne turtle. Is there an insurance code for this?

Answer: Sure -- W5922XA. (Lowering the Bar, Injury Code W5922XA: Struck by Turtle)

3) Question: I'm Pakistani. Nobody else in this restaurant is being charged a mandatory 18 percent tip except for me and the Bangladeshi couple seated near me. What is going on here?

Answer: Some restaurants allegedly have a policy of automatically including an 18 percent gratuity on the bills of Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi customers because "they never tip." (New York Daily News, Customers file suit against Baluchi's Indian restaurant for 'tip discrimination' practices) (via Above the Law)
