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 ordered the "Pasta Plate from Hell" dish at the East Coast Grill in Cambridge, Mass., which includes Naga pepper -- one of the hottest peppers in the world. It was so hot that I passed out and had to be taken away in an ambulance. Can I sue? 

Answer: No. As you may recall, customers who order the Pasta Plate from Hell are required to first sign a waiver acknowledging the danger and agreeing not to sue. (CBS, Customers at Cambridge, Mass. eatery waive right to sue, if food's too hot to handle)

2) Question: I read your post on the legal hazards of "planking," which suggested that perhaps plankers should move on to "Tebowing."  Is Tebowing believed to be risk-free at this time?

Answer: No. It can get you suspended from school. (The Associated Press, NY students suspended for organizing "Tebowing")

3) Question: I'm driving about three miles per hour in the school parking lot here in Prosper, Texas, and now a police officer is approaching me. What could I have possibly done wrong now?!

Answer: Probably nothing. During the holidays, police in Prosper are waving down drivers in places like school parking lots so that they can give out $10 gift cards to good drivers. (AOL Autos, No, That Cop Does Not Want To Give You A Ticket--Just A Holiday Gift)
