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 refused to provide my good-for-nothing, 22-year-old son with a shot of vodka. He responded by going out to my back porch, retrieving some dog feces, rubbing it in my face and pushing me. Please tell me that he can be sent to jail for life for this crime against his mama.

Answer: No, not for life, but he can be charged with felony domestic battery and might also be labeled as the "worst son in the world" by the media, if that helps at all. (The Smoking Gun, Florida Police Arrest Worst Son In The World)

2) Question: I am a prostitute in Australia, where my job is legal. But the local motels here will not rent me a room to do my business. Is this discrimination?

Answer: Yes. In Australia, a court recently ruled that a motel violated anti-discrimination laws when it refused to rent a room to a prostitute. (WSJ Law Blog, Australian Court Rules for Prostitute Who Was Turned Away By Motel)

3) Question: Quick question. I'm in Germany -- can I tattoo the Rolling Stones' famous "tongue" logo onto my pony?

Answer: No. In Germany, tattooing animals for fashion purposes has been found to violate animal cruelty laws. (The LocalDo not tattoo your pony, court tells German man)
