Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: Yes, I did urinate in my own front yard. But I did not anticipate that the Google Street View car was going to rolling by at that precise moment, memorializing my urination for the world to see and making me a laughingstock in my small village. Can I sue Google?

Answer: Of course. A similar case is underway in France right now (Reuters, Frenchman sues over Google Views urination photo)

2) Question: Our church likes to provide free bottles of water along the Mardi Gras parade routes. Why are we now receiving a cease and desist order over providing free water? 

Answer: No permit, no giving away free bottles of water. (FOX News, Church Ordered to Stop Giving Away Free Water)

3) Question: I am the Clerk of the county court. One of my employees improperly refused to transmit a complete appellate record because of some missing documents, causing a law firm over $9,000 in expenses. Should I apologize or something? 

Answer: Yes. And you may also be personally on the hook for the $9,000. (The Clarion LedgerJudge orders Hinds circuit clerk to pay $9,535) (via ABA Journal)
