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 trying to talk to my lawyer at The Law Booth kiosk in the Boynton Beach Mall, but this 10-year-old waiting for his mom outside of the American Eagle Outfitters store keeps poking his head in the "doorway" to the kiosk. Is this going to waive my attorney-client privilege? 

Answer: Great question. The blogosphere will probably need for "mall attorney" jurisprudence to develop further before it can provide an answer, sorry. (Palm Beach PostYes, they're real lawyers: Booth at Boynton mall peddles foreclosure advice) (via South Florida Lawyers)

2) Question: I was driving drunk and a policeman pulled me over. He said he was going to cut me a break, and that I should just get out of my pickup truck, leave the keys in the tailpipe and come back to get my truck the next day. I gratefully did all that, but now that I've come back to get the truck it is gone! What is going on here?

Answer: Sometimes police will have you leave your truck behind so that they can then take it and smash it into their estranged wife's car. (The Star-LedgerNewark police officer steals car from drunk driver, smashes into wife's car, authorities say)

3) Question: I'd like to be a lawyer but I really don't have the time or energy to go to law school. Can't I just go be an apprentice lawyer somewhere instead of going law school? 

Answer: Sure, if you are in California, Vermont, Virginia or Washington. (PrawfsBlawg, Home Schooling Esq.)
