Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: The judge hearing the domestic violence case against me just ordered me to get my wife some flowers, get dressed up, pick up my wife, take her to Red Lobster and then go bowling with her! Can he do this?!

Answer: I'm afraid so. Try the Four Course Seafood Feast. (Sun SentinelFlowers, dinner, bowling -- and counseling -- ordered by Broward judge in domestic case)

2) Question: The psychiatrist testifying at this competency hearing is wearing a two-foot tall cone-shaped hat that is imprinted with stars and lightning bolts. He also has an 18-inch white beard and insists on punctuating crucial elements of his testimony by stabbing the air with a wand. I asked him why he is wearing/doing this and he swears it is required under New Mexico law. What is he talking about?

Answer: The psychiatrist is mistaken. The bill requiring the hat, beard, wand, etc. passed the New Mexico Senate but did not pass the House. (io9, In 1995, New Mexico voted on a bill requiring psychologists to dress as wizards)

3) Question: My wife just confessed that she was arrested last week for "Super Drunk driving" in Michigan. That does not sound good -- what is it?

Answer: It is not good. In Michigan, "Super Drunk driving" means you are driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.17 or more. Convicted Super Drunk drivers face stiffer penalties, including a one-year breath alcohol ignition interlock requirement, higher fines and costs, and possibly more jail time. (, Ferndale police arrest 2 for 'super drunk' driving; blood alcohol levels between .33 & .35)
