Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I bought some of those "toning shoes" that claim to provide a workout just by walking around in them but my butt is as big as ever. Plus, I wound up just toppling over in the shoes and hurting my ankle. Can I sue someone?

Answer: Yes, at least 90 personal injury lawsuits are already pending in federal and state court against Skechers USA Inc. (The National Law JournalSuits pile up over toning shoes)

2) Question: I just had an awesome meal at Denny's but now realize I only have $1 with me. Can I pay this tab off with the $1 and a bag of marijuana? 

Answer: No, Spicoli. And don't start walking around the restaurant trying to sell the pot to other diners, either. (MSN Now, Stoner tries to pay for meal at Denny's with a bag of weed)

3) Question: The assistant principal at my son's elementary school confiscated my son's iPod. I am thinking about responding to this injustice by creating a fake profile of the assistant principal on a pornographic website, complete with explicit photos. I feel better already. Is there any downside to this plan? 

Answer: Oh, yes -- you could be convicted of felonies, including taking the identity of another and computer fraud, and face some jail time. (The RepublicParent gets back at school official with porn site)
