Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere. 1) Question: I am being prosecuted for stealing two paintings, and prosecutors have surveillance video of me doing so. But I have no memory of stealing the paintings. Can the court just dismiss the charges? Answer: No problem. (WSJ Law Blog, The Lawyer Who Forgot He Was a Thief) 2) Question: I was at a Dallas Cowboys game in 100 degree heat. I sat on a black marble bench that was baking in the sun. The bench was "extremely hot and unreasonably dangerous" and get this -- there was no warning sign alerting me that the bench could be hot! I sat down on the bench and just kept sitting on it until I had burned my butt. Can I sue the Cowboys? Answer: Of course. (ESPN, Burned fan sues Cowboys) 3) Question: I am a witch. Why can I no longer find good spells and potions on eBay? Answer: Sorry, but eBay is now banning the sale of curses, spells, hexes, potions and other "metaphysical" items.
