Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: A guy claiming to be a doctor just showed up at my front door. He has a black doctor's bag and everything. Anyway, he is offering free breast exams! Seems legit -- right?

Answer: I cannot say for sure that there are no legitimate door-to-door breast examiners, but I think you should assume "not legit" until further notice. (Orlando Sentinel, Man accused of phony breast exams strikes deal with prosecutors)

2) Question: I find some of the new websites such as LinkedIn and Facebook to be quite invasive of my privacy. Am I alone in this view? 

Answer: No. But holding that belief does mean you are officially an old person. (IT Business, LinkedIn founder dead wrong about privacy being just for 'old people') (via Slaw)

3) Question: I'm a police dispatcher for the 9-1-1 emergency service. A family just called to say they are lost in a corn maze. Does this qualify as an emergency? 

Answer: Yes, send the K-9 unit. (Los Angeles TimesCouple lost in corn maze calls 911)
