Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I am completely, 100 percent exhausted. However, I have been planning a burglary that I intend to carry out tonight. Should I suck it up and go through with the burglary?

Answer: Skip it. If you fall asleep during the burglary, you will probably be arrested. (The Associated Press, Wichita burglar caught after falling asleep)

2) Question: I'm a new mom and I've been asked to participate in a video about breast-feeding. The producers want me to sign a bunch of releases and stuff before we film it. What is the big deal? Should I just sign everything?

Answer: Make sure you look the releases over and think about whether you want to allow the producers to use your real name. Sometimes people will take innocent breast-feeding videos like yours off of YouTube and splice them into pornographic movies, giving the impression that the breast-feeding scenes and the pornographic scenes portray the same woman.

3) Question: The state tried to take my property through eminent domain to let a corporation build a large facility. I fought it! I took it to the Supreme Court, even, but I eventually lost. Trust me, it was fascinating. So who do you think will play me in the movie?

Answer: Brooke Shields. (The Hartford CourantBrooke Shields To Star In Movie Based On New London Eminent Domain Case)
