Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I would like to make a donation to my law school and possibly have something named after me. My donation will be generous, but not enough to get my name on a whole wing of a building or anything like that. How about a Men's Room? 

Answer: That is a novel idea, but just know that if you went to Harvard Law School, the Men's Room naming rights are already taken. (Above the Law, True Story: Harvard Law Sells Naming Rights to Its New Bathrooms, and a Berkeley Law Professor Couldn't Be Happier)

2) Question: I just got my welfare check. Time to hit the strip club -- who is with me?!

Answer: Not so fast. (CBS News, House bans welfare recipients' money from strip clubs, liquor stores)

3) Question: Here is the plan. I will take about five tons of ice from a glacier in my hometown in the Patagonia region of Chile (nobody is using it, trust me). Then we'll ship it by a refrigerated truck to Santiago and make designer ice cubes out of it for cocktails. Brilliant! Approve?

Answer: No. Sorry, but you cannot just help yourself to tons of ice from local glaciers in Chile. That will get you charged with theft and possibly with "violation of national monuments." (The GuardianGlacier thief arrested in Chile) (via Consumerist)
