Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My stupid uncle is posting awkward photos of me on Facebook from when I was kid, like shots of me posing in front of a Christmas tree. Can I get a restraining order to stop this evil man?

Answer: Nope. (Technology & Marketing Law Blog, Posting Family Photos to Facebook With Snarky Comments Isn't Harassment of Family Member -- Olson v. LaBrie)

2) Question: I have been disbarred, and the disbarment was imposed under my married name. I can just keep practicing under my maiden name, right?

Answer: You may not. (Legal Profession Blog, Two Names, Two Disbarments)

3) Question: I came home from work to find a saucer-sized, orange sticker on my door saying that New Orleans police had "served a narcotic-related warrant or checked this residence" as a result of a Crimestoppers tip. What is this supposed to be, a "Scarlet Letter" or something? Do I need to keep this on my door?

Answer: No, you can take it down if you want. And just be happy it wasn't the huge green poster-size stickers that the Nashville police are putting on homes after searches. (The Times-PicayuneACLU objects to NOPD plans to identify properties investigated after drug tips)
