Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I had a great gig as an actress in a hit TV show. Then I criticized the creator of the show for being abusive toward me during rehearsals and the next thing I know my character is killed off in a horrible electrical mishap in a car accident! Is this wrongful termination?

Answer: It could be. Keep an eye on the Nicollette Sheridan vs. ABC lawsuit to see how that case plays out. (Hollywood, Esq.Nicollette Sheridan Vs. ABC: 'Desperate Housewives' Wrongful Termination Trial Begins)

2) Question: I'm not going to lie, I like to drink alcohol. Are there any jobs out there in which being a drinker is a requirement? 

Answer: Yes, would you like to be on the Utah Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission? (Jonathan Turley, Utah Legislator Proposes Drinkers-Only State Positions)

3) Question: I met a guy who swears he is a state court judge who hears only "pet law" cases. This cannot be true, right?

Answer: Were you in San Antonio, Texas? Because there is, in fact, an actual Pet Court in that city that handles recurring problems such as dog bites, stray pets and residents who fail to register and vaccinate their animals. (WSJ Law Blog, A Breed Apart: San Antonio's Pet Court)
