Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My employer recently posted a sign that lists how much money the restaurant will deduct from my paycheck for various potential transgressions such as: "Friends/family visiting while employee is working ($5)"; or "Salads not being made properly ($5)." Can they do this? 

Answer: No. It looks like you may be dealing with a rogue manager. (The Consumerist, Update: Jet's Pizza Says That List Of Payroll Deduction Penalties Is Not Company Policy)

2) Question: I accidentally went through airport security with a bag of marijuana in my backpack. The TSA searched my backpack but returned it to me with the marijuana still in it along with a note that said, "C'mon Son." Can you translate -- does this mean I am in trouble?

Answer: Translation: You are not in trouble, but please hide your weed better next time. (The Not-So Private Parts, Another TSA Officer Leaves Personalized Note In Passenger's Bag (After Finding Marijuana))

3) Question: A baby fawn refused to leave the site of where his mother deer was killed by a car. I was afraid that the fawn would be killed by coyotes or hunters and no rescue shelters would take her, so I took the fawn to my farm to live. I'm not trying to brag, but do you think I might be honored by the city for this kind act?

Answer: It is more likely you will be charged with “unauthorized taking” of the deer and face up to eight months in prison. (ABA Journal, Rescuing Deer Puts Wisconsin Man at Risk of Jail Time)
