Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My neighbor has asked us to sign a release of liability before my son arrives at their house for a playdate. Is this how playdates work nowadays?

Answer: Not where I live, but who knows? Maybe you should counter-offer by asking for your neighbors to place some funds in escrow in case your son suffers any injury while in their care or loses any of his possessions? (Jonathan Turley, Mr. [Legal] Manners Responds To Parents Of Legal Bubble Boy)

2) Question: I'm a fugitive on the run in Italy. How am I supposed to update my Facebook page under these conditions?

Answer: That is a challenge, but bear in mind that each update provides fresh clues for the police on your whereabouts. (NewsCore, Fugitive Caught Posing With Obama Waxwork)

3) Question: Some motorist who was upset with my driving just pulled up alongside me and showered my car with pennies! Some of the pennies went through my open window and sun roof and even knocked my glasses off. Unacceptable! Can he do this? 

Answer: No, those pennies are "dangerous weapons" under the circumstances. He could facing charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. (CBS News/The Associated Press, Pennies raise the ante in road rage incident)
