Friday'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 a postman and I always wear a Santa suit as I deliver the mail during the holidays. But I just got a call from my supervisor saying I am not permitted to do so this year. What gives? 

Answer: It is technically a non-postal regulation uniform, and sometimes other mail carriers will get jealous of a Santa suit-wearing colleague and rat him out. Santa haters gonna hate. (Consumerist, Postal Carrier Told He Can No Longer Wear Santa Suit On The Job)

2) Question: I saw your post about the guy who tried to help a baby deer but ended up getting himself charged criminally with the “unauthorized taking” of the deer. Here is another deer-related question. Can I drive a deer that has been hit by a car to the hospital, and does it matter if I am intoxicated at the time?

Answer: I don't know what hospital policy is for treating wounded deer, but police are on record as saying that while they sympathize with trying to save a deer during the holiday season, “driving while intoxicated will not be tolerated.” (Democrat and Chronicle, Police stop Greece man allegedly taking injured deer to Unity Hospital)

3) Question: Can you help me locate one of these "Bruschi" bear dolls? If you do I'll pay you $400.

Answer: Nice try, but if I find one I'm going directly to Marc Randazza for the full $500 reward. (The Legal Satyricon, $500 reward)
