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 am being prosecuted for stealing two paintings, and prosecutors have surveillance video of me doing so. But I have no memory of stealing the paintings. Can the court just dismiss the charges?

Answer: No problem. (WSJ Law Blog, The Lawyer Who Forgot He Was a Thief)

2) Question: I was at a Dallas Cowboys game in 100 degree heat. I sat on a black marble bench that was baking in the sun. The bench was "extremely hot and unreasonably dangerous" and get this -- there was no warning sign alerting me that the bench could be hot! I sat down on the bench and just kept sitting on it until I had burned my butt. Can I sue the Cowboys?

Answer: Of course. (ESPN, Burned fan sues Cowboys)

3) Question: I am a witch. Why can I no longer find good spells and potions on eBay? 

Answer: Sorry, but eBay is now banning the sale of curses, spells, hexes, potions and other "metaphysical" items. (ShortList, eBay Banning the Sale of Spells
