Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I'm an astronaut. I found a cool camera from a prior space mission while I was walking on the moon. Can I keep it?

Answer: Whether that camera was abandoned, given to you as a gift or stolen by you may need to be resolved at trial. (, Judge Denies Apollo Astronaut's Motion to Dismiss Moon Camera Lawsuit) (via Lawyerist)

2) Question: I work for the EU. We are trying to micro-manage the lives of children and parents as much as possible. WIll required warning labels on all latex balloons requiring "adult supervision" for children under eight years old do the job? 

Answer: That is a good start, but you should also place similar warnings on all whistle-blowers and further require that all teddy bears be washable. That will really tick people off! (Telegraph, Children to be banned from blowing up balloons, under EU safety rules) (via Jonathan Turley)

3) Question: I'm a 17-year-old girl in Los Angeles. I need to get tan for the Homecoming dance this weekend but the tanning salon says I cannot use their beds. Whaaaaatt?

Answer: Sorry, but you will need to hit the spray-tan bottle because children under 18 are now banned from using tanning beds in California. (The Washington Post, California becomes first state to ban children under 18 from using tanning beds) (via Consumerist)
