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'm a land developer. Do I need to tell the buyers of homes in a subdivision that I'm selling that it sits right next to a former World War II bombing range that is laden with unexploded bombs, ammunition, ordnance and related chemicals?

: Heck no. (Courthouse News Service, Court Lets Developers Slide Over Explosive Deal)

2) Question: I was trying to start my own methamphetamine lab but I got the recipe wrong and didn't have the key ingredient I needed to make meth. The cops discovered my ill-fated effort -- will I get in trouble for this? 

Answer: No, because your mistake with the recipe made it impossible for you to make meth. (The Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionSuspected meth lab missing key ingredients)

3) Question: The cops have set up a radar trap in my neighborhood. Can I flash my lights at approaching motorists to warn them? 

Answer: Yes, those light flashes are First Amendment-protected speech! (The Legal Satyricon, Flashing your headlights to warn other motorists of a speed trap = free speech)
