Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: A blizzard hit and I was forced to wait on the tarmac for my flight to take off for seven hours without food, water or appropriate sanitary facilities. Can I recover damages for this?

Answer: No, but as a consolation, the law can give you "sympathy." (New York Law JournalPassenger's Suit Over Long Tarmac Wait Is Rejected)

2) Question: Our good-for-nothing neighbor here in the U.K. has harassed us for 10 years by making hundreds of silent telephone calls to our house, ordering hundreds of unwanted taxis to arrive at our address, and even ordering two tons of coal to be delivered to our door. Is there anything I can do to stop this? 

Answer: You can try to get an order banning his "anti-social behaviour" and, if he breaches it, have him arrested and jailed. (Daily MailNeighbour from hell spent ten years ordering hundreds of taxis and takeaways and TWO TONS of coal to victim's home) (via Jonathan Turley)

3) Question: I work at Dunkin' Donuts. A man from our corporate headquarters just arrived to do an audit of our store, which included taking a wad of cash from the cash register and running out the door. That's part of the standard Dunkin' Donuts audit, right?

Answer: Wrong. (UPI, Fake Dunkin' Donuts auditor arrested)
