Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1. Question: I have agreed to have sex with my sister-in-law at her request because she is unable to conceive a child with her husband. Are there any legal precautions I may need to take here?

Answer: You may want to have her document that your rendezvous is (are) consensual. (Above the LawManhattan Lawyer Happy To Help Out Brother-in-Law By Banging His Wife)

2. Question: I am a doctor and one of my patients just labeled me a "real tool" on a website used to rate doctors. Unacceptable! Can I sue my patient for defamation over this? 

Answer: Sorry, but no. (ABA JournalCalling doc 'a real tool' isn’t defamatory, Minnesota Supreme Court rules)

3. Question: I have been driving around for an hour in Massachusetts but cannot find a single Happy Hour. Where da party at?!
