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 wife and I had an argument and she proceeded to throw the contents of an entire box of cupcakes -- one by one -- at my head. She had quite a few hits, too, as evidenced by the icing all over my head and shirt. Is this a crime?

Answer: Oh, yes. She can be charged with a misdemeanor count of domestic battery for those cupcake projectiles. (CBS, Domestic dispute gets husband covered in cupcakes, say Chic. cops)

2) Question: I'm an actress, and I have been 29 years old for about a decade now, as far as you and the rest of the world know. But now the Internet Movie Database has published my age as ... 40 years old! I'm not saying IMDB is wrong, but do they have the right to publish my age like that? It may hurt my acting career. 

Answer: We'll see, a case like that seeking punitive damages is being litigated right now. (Threat Level, Actress Sues Amazon for Publishing Her Age)

3) Question: I'm a student at Evergreen Park High School in Chicago. I really need to use the restroom but I already used it during class three times this semester. What should I do?

Answer: Sorry, but three visits per semester is the maximum number of permitted bathroom visits at your school. Until next semester starts you'll need to hold it in or be prepared to stay after school to make up the lost time. (The Associated Press, High school sets bathroom visit limit for students)
