Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My buddy just bet me $1,000 that a random stranger of my choosing would be unable to name a single sitting U.S. Supreme Court justice. Should I take that bet?

Answer: It sounds like you are being hustled, as a recent survey shows that only one out of three Americans can name a sitting justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. (ABA Journal, Two-Thirds of Americans Can't Name a Single US Supreme Court Justice, Survey Shows)

2) Question: I work for the city of Detroit and we are trying to trim our budget down a bit. I see we have a "horseshoer" on our payroll, despite the fact that we have no horses. Can we eliminate this position?

Answer: Sorry, but it is "not possible" to eliminate positions under union rules. (Jonathan Turley, Detroit Continues To Maintain Horseshoer Despite The Absence of Horses)

3) Question: I work at a convenience store and I just watched a woman try to shoplift an entire case of beer under her dress (video). Top that! 

Answer: Impressive video, indeed, but I see your case of beer and raise you a 42-inch TV. (Daily MailThief arrested for shoplifting after hiding 42in TV under her skirt)
