Monday'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 flying across the country and I am seated at the back of the plane completely surrounded by about a dozen families with very loud and very young children. What is going on here?

Answer: Welcome to the back of the plane, a.k.a. the "baby ghetto!" (The Wall Street JournalFlying With Little Children? Go to the Back of the Plane)

2) Question: I am a teacher at a day care center. I'd like to pierce one of my 5-year-old students' ears, and the child says it is "OK with her." Can I proceed?

Answer: No. You need to speak to her parents first. (Star-TelegramMom irate after 5-year-old's ears are pierced at Fort Worth day care)

3) Question: The man who is leading a scientific "sexology" study here on campus wants me to go to a motel room with him for "role play." Is this a legitimate aspect of the science of sexology?

Answer: Check out Sexology Blog Watch for more details but you should assume that this research is a fraud. (Seattle PIHigh-paying UW 'sexology' study ad bogus, police warn)
