Tuesday'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 13 years old and I just moved to Newport News, Va. I asked some of my new friends to go trick-or-treating with me this Halloween and they just laughed at me. What's going on here?

Answer: Sorry, but trick-or-treating by someone over 12 years of age is a Class 4 misdemeanor in Newport News. (Legal Juice, Truth: It's Illegal For 12-Year-Olds To Trick Or Treat Here)

2) Question: I'm a police officer. A man just punched a pizza deliveryman in the head "because he forgot the garlic knots." I hate when they forget the garlic knots, too -- that is not "justifiable" assault, is it?

Answer: The garlic knots are delicious, but no -- not even close. (The Smoking Gun, Cops: 346-Pound Floridian Punched Pizza Deliveryman "Because He Forgot The Garlic Knots")

3) Question: I work at a bank. New FDIC regulations bar us from employing anyone convicted of a crime involving dishonesty, breach of trust or money laundering. One of our employees just 'fessed up to having used a fake dime in a laundromat washing machine in 1963. Do we need to fire him? 

Answer: It looks that way. (ABA Journal, Bank Fires Customer Rep for Using Fake Dime at Laundromat in 1963, Cites New Regulations)
