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 was frustrated at work and gave someone at my workplace a "wet willie." Can I get in any trouble for that? 

Answer: Delonte? Is that you? Yes, depending on your employer you could face as much as a $25,000 fine for that childishness. (CBS/AP, Mavs' Delonte West fined $25K for "wet willie")

2) Question: I was traveling for business and staying in a hotel. I managed to hook up with a friend I knew in town and we had sex in the hotel room. During sex, a glass light fitting fell off of the wall and hit me in the nose and mouth, requiring me to seek hospital treatment. Can I seek worker's compensation for my injuries since the sexual activity came during the course of my employment?

Answer: Of course! (The Daily TelegraphCompo payout for woman injured during sex on work trip) (via Above the Law)

3) Question: Can I bury my late husband in our backyard? All of the local cemeteries are full!

Answer: You should expect to get some significant opposition to any "home burial" from county officials, who will likely argue that it violates zoning regulations. (ABA JournalWidow Argues for Right to Keep Husband Buried in Backyard)
