Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I got drunk and was pulled over for diving my car 143 mph in a 55 mph zone. Will this cost me my job as a police officer?

: Nope. (The Denver PostDenver appeals reinstatement of drunk, off-duty cop on 143-mph joy ride)

2) Question: I have a "shy bladder" and cannot urinate in the presence of other people. This is a big problem on drug-test day, when the test is conducted in a public restroom and I cannot perform. My employer is threatening to fire me. Can they do that? 

Answer: No, "shy bladder syndrome" is now protected as a disability under the Americans With Disabilities Act." (The Daily CallerAmericans with Disabilities Act covers 'bashful bladder syndrome,' could cost employers billions)

3) Question: I just had a baby at a Greek hospital. I don't have all the money to pay the hospital bill right now. Can I set up some kind of payment plan?

Answer: If you want with your new baby to go home with you when you leave the hospital, you're going to need to pay that bill in full first. (BBC, Greek hospitals tighten payment rules)
