Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My co-workers and I have have pooled our money each week for about a decade to buy lottery tickets. The deal was we'd share the money if we won. One of the guys in our pool got sick a few months ago and stopped coming to work and paying into the pool. A couple weeks ago our pool hit the lottery jackpot for $99 million, and now the guy who stopped paying in a few months ago says he should get a cut of the money!!! Is he right?

Answer: That very question is being litigated now in Ohio. In the meantime, the lottery commission may ask you to set aside a share of the jackpot just in case your former co-worker prevails. (FOX News, Ohio Man Sues for Part of $99 Million Jackpot Won by Co-Workers)

2) Question: I am thinking about getting breast implants. Are there any special risks I should be aware of? 

Answer: Consult with your plastic surgeon, but you should definitely be aware of the dangers of playing paintball with enhanced boobs. (Los Angeles Times, Woman's breast implant explodes during paintball: New high-impact sports risk?)

3) Question: I question whether Arizona iced tea is truly "100% Natural" as advertised. Should I hire my lawyers for a class action lawsuit against the makers of Arizona iced tea before I buy a bottle of the iced tea or after I buy it? 

Answer: After. (New Jersey Law JournalHiring Lawyers Before Buying Product Stews Plaintiff in Arizona Iced Tea Suit)
