Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

Powder1) Question: I am the mugshot photographer at a jail. This entire head of a guy who the police just arrested is covered in some kind of white powder. Are we supposed to clean him up first or something? This was not covered in the training.

Answer: Naahhh. Just take the picture. (Miami New TimesMugshots Friday: Why is This Man Covered In Powder?)

2) Question: I work at a government agency. Ever since the agency fixed the drinking fountains they took away our free bottled water. Unacceptable! Can the employees sue to get the bottled water back?

Answer: Yes, but the D.C. Circuit says you will probably lose. (The Volokh Conspiracy, No Bottled Water on Uncle Sam’s Dime)

3) Question: My son is a good boy who is on the honor roll at school. He is also a Baltimore Ravens fan -- why won't the school let him wear his "Ball So Hard" sweatshirt? 

Answer: It's OK now. "Ball So Hard" gear has been cleared by the school board. (BelAir Patch, Student Reprimanded for 'Ball So Hard University' Sweatshirt)
