Tuesday'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 watching the 3-D version of "Titanic" here in China. I may not be remembering the original correctly, but didn't they show Kate Winslet's breasts in the original film? 

Answer: Your memory is correct, but China's State Administration of Radio, Film and Television decided to censor out the nudity scenes because it says that "considering the vivid 3D effects, we fear that viewers may reach out their hands for a touch and thus interrupt other people's viewing."

2) Question: My buddies and I tried to steal a guy's phone. We cornered him and got him to turn it over, but he kept chasing after us and somehow got one of us to give him his phone back. That proved to be a huge mistake as he then immediately (1) started taking photos of us with his just-returned phone, and (2) called the police and stayed on the line with them as he chased us through town. Who is this crazy man?!

Answer: It sounds like you may have had the extreme misfortune of trying to steal a phone from attorney David Newdorf. (Legal Pad, Badass Lawyer of the week: David Newdorf)

3) Question: I got kicked out of MetLife Stadium for being a drunken idiot at the Jets football game. Now the team is saying that I must write an apology, take a four-hour online course on fan conduct and score at least 70 percent on the test at the end of the course if I ever want to come back to the stadium. Do I have to do this?

Answer: No, but if you do not comply with these rules your name and photo will be placed on the team's "unforgiven" list and you will be arrested for trespassing if you are ever caught at the stadium.
