Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere. 1. Question: I am a lawyer and, after a dispute and argument with a client, I beat him with a baseball bat. Can I keep my law license? Answer: Sorry, but no. (The Charleston Gazette, Lawyer stripped of license for beating client with bat) 2. Question: I am blind. Will that prevent me from getting a California drivers license? Answer: Nope! (UPI, Calif. DMV renews blind man's license) 3. Question: I am the father of a 1-year-old boy with a woman with whom I am no longer involved. She named the boy using her last name, but I would like him to be re-named to have my last name. Can I get a court order requiring that? Answer: No problem.
