Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: Where can I go in New York to meet top business executives and political figures? I'm trying to think outside of the box a bit here.

Answer: Try the Midstate Correctional Facility. It is reportedly "amazing" for that type of networking. (New York Daily NewsRapper Ja Rule, serving two years for gun possession, finds new posse behind bars)

2) Question: I'm one of the best high school linebackers in the country. I was deciding between scholarships offers from Clemson to Auburn, and ultimately chose Auburn because when I visited Clemson they had no Chick-fil-A on campus. But after I signed my National Letter of Intent saying I would attend Auburn, I learned that there was, in fact, a Chick-fil-A on the Clemson campus. D'oh!! Is my Letter of Intent binding?

Answer: According to the NCAA, your NLI is, in fact, binding and if you breach it and attend a different school you will lose one season of competition in your sport. On the bright side, you have a Chick-fil-A in your future no matter what you do! (Dr. Saturday, Cassanova McKinzy spurned Clemson because he missed the Chick-fil-A)

3) Question: I'm a documentary filmmaker and I'm attending a congressional hearing looking into EPA's investigation of potential water contamination from natural gas drilling. Can I film it? 

Answer: Only if you don't mind getting arrested for "unlawful entry." (Politico, Josh Fox arrested at hearing)
