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 a supervisor in a government agency. One of my employees suffers from REALLY bad flatulence. Can I issue him an official reprimand for creating an "intolerable" and "hostile" environment for coworkers, and for "conduct unbecoming a federal officer"?: I have a detailed log of the dates and times when he released the "awful and unpleasant odor."

Answer: No. (The Smoking Gun, Feds Withdraw Reprimand Dealt To Gassy Worker)

2. Question: I'm running late and stuck in traffic. I'm driving alone but I have some corporate papers sitting in my passenger seat. Can I use the carpool lane since a corporation is, in the eyes of the law, a "person"?

Answer: A corporation is not a person in the eyes of "carpool law," so no. (Lowering the Bar, UPDATE: No, You Can't Carpool With a Corporation)

3. Question: I am a lawyer and I need a "Bride Kidnapping Expert" for our trial. I'm out of luck, aren't I?

Answer: No, you're all set! (The Sun, From MILF commander to porn historian - meet the men and women with the world's weirdest job titles)
