Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I am about to lead an expedition in the Buffalo National River Park in Arkansas in search of Bigfoot. Anyone with $500 can come along. Are there any rules or regulations I need to know about? 

Answer: If you will be searching for Bigfoot on federal land such as the Buffalo National River Park you will need a permit. The only twist is that the government may not issue the "finding Bigfoot expedition" permit that you require. (FOX News, Bigfoot sleuth stomped for leading tour on federal lands without permit)

2) Question: I am a prosecutor. Why are all of the defendants in my cases suddenly showing up in court wearing hipster-style glasses, kind of like Urkel from the old TV show "Family Matters"? 

Answer: All of the crafty defendants are going with hipster glasses in court these days to aid in their "nerd defense." Defense attorneys think the glasses make their clients appear less intimidating. (The Washington PostTrendy, non-prescription eyewear latest in criminal defendant strategic attire)

3) Question: I have been accused of "aggravated pimping." Oh yeah!! That's a good thing, right? 

Answer: No, sorry, but aggravated pimping is not good at all. It means you are alleged to be in the habitual operation of a prostitution racket. (The Volokh Conspiracy, "Aggravated Pimping")
