Wednesday'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 a lawyer and I have been asked to represent a man who has stabbed not one but two prior lawyers in their necks with pencils. Do you think I should take the case, provided I can ensure that there are no pencils in the area when we are together? 

Answer: Please don't overlook the sharpness and stabbing capabilities of other writing utensils, such as pens. (HeraldNet, Suspect allegedly stabs his third defense attorney) (via Lowering the Bar)

2) Question: I recently learned that my husband has been having regular sessions with a sex robot. Can I use this against him in our pending divorce?

Answer: I direct you to Sonya Ziaja's recent paper entitled, "Homewrecker 2.0: An Exploration of Liability for Heart Balm Torts Involving A.I. Humanoid Consorts." (Jonathan Turley, Robot Love?)

3) Question: I am in law enforcement and I was entrusted with a secret dossier detailing site-by-site security plans for the 2012 London Olympics. However, I think I left the dossier on the train this morning. Now what do I do?

Answer: If you are lucky, maybe one of your fellow commuters turned it in. Check with the police. (FOX Sports, Report: Security secrets left on train)
