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 know that the court rule is "no cameras in the courtroom" but, come on, what are they really going to do to me if I try to walk in with one? 

Answer: Get ready to be Tasered, bro. (Jonathan Turley, Court Staff Tasers Obnoxious Man Insisting On Entering Area With Camera)

2) Question: I work at a casino as a cocktail waitress and I would like to get some shifts in the "Party Pit" where the high-rollers hang out! How come I never get assigned to the Party Pit? 

Answer: What is your dress size? If it is not zero to four, then no Party Pit for you. (New Jersey Law JournalGolden Nugget Cocktail Waitresses Call 'Party Pit' Duty Discriminatory)

3) Question: Before I rode the mechanical bull at a bar, the bar made me sign a release entitled "PARTICIPANT AGREEMENT, RELEASE AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK." I signed it without reading it, rode the bull, and got thrown across the room and hurt my back. Can I successfully sue the bar?

Answer: In Texas, at least, courts have found that the title of such a release informed you of its purpose, and you are presumed to have read the release you signed. So you're riding that bull at your own risk! (Abnormal Use, Mechanical Bull Tosses Rider, Prevails in Court)
