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'm a high school student and my family just moved to San Diego. I asked my teacher today if I could leave class to use the bathroom and she said no, handed me a bucket, and told me to go to another room and urinate in the bucket. Is this a West Coast thing or something? We did not do this in my old school.

Answer: No, that is not standard procedure in San Diego or anywhere else with indoor plumbing. (Los Angeles TimesSan Diego student complains of being forced to urinate in bucket)

2) Question: I'm trying to fill my car up with gas in the U.K. The gas pump works for everyone else but as soon as I try to put gas in my car the pump stops functioning. Any ideas? 

Answer: Are you uninsured? The U.K. is rolling out cameras at gas stations that will automatically stop uninsured or untaxed vehicles from being filled with fuel. Sorry. (MirrorCCTV at petrol stations will automatically stop uninsured cars being filled with fuel)

3) Question: I used to be a gay porn star, but now I want to be a teacher. Does my past disqualify me from getting a Florida teaching certificate? 

Answer: No problem. (Jonathan Turley, Former Gay Porn Star Secures Right To Pursue Florida Teaching Certificate)
