Wednesday'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 in my first week as a new state trooper. I was asked to respond to a call today where a person found an injured and unconscious bobcat, placed it in his car and drove it to a nearby highway Welcome Center. But after the car arrived at the Welcome Center, the bobcat woke up and now I'm being asked to remove a very angry, injured and quite conscious bobcat from the car. This was definitely not covered by my trooper training. Thoughts?

Answer: Best practices seem to be to use your police Taser on the bobcat, then have a veterinarian administer a sedative. (Burlington Free PressBobcat retrieved by driver on Interstate 91 in Guilford)

 2) Question: I'm a U.S. congressman. Can I wear a hoodie while delivering remarks on the House floor? 

Answer: No, wearing a hoodie violates a rule in Congress that prohibits wearing "hats" on the House floor. (CBS News, Dem Rep. Bobby Rush escorted from House floor for wearing hoodie in honor of Trayvon Martin)

3) Question: I am a prostitute, a career I started after being fired from McDonald's. Can I sue McDonald's for my current plight? 

Answer: You would not be the first to try. (The Consumerist, Prostitute Blames McDonald's For Driving Her Into Profession)
