PrawfsPuzzler: Law Trivia Sudoku!

Prawfs_puzzler_logoAnd now, the first prawfs-themed sudoku!

Here's the deal, this sudoku puzzle is quite hard ... unless you correctly answer the questions below about the law. Answers fill in blanks, helping you solve the sudoku. If you get all the answers, solving the rest of the puzzle should be no problem. Hey, you didn't go to law school because you were good at math!

This works just like a regular sudoku, except that instead of using the digits 1 through 9, as most sudokus do, in this puzzle we'll do it computer-programmer style and start with 0, going up through 8.

Instructions: Fill the blank spots in the grid so that each column, row, and bolded square contains one and only one of the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.



          A    The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act was enacted in 19__.

          B    This rule allows the exclusion of relevant evidence on the basis of unfair prejudice.

          F    This title of the U.S. Code concerns patents.

          G    This title of the U.S. Code deals with the judiciary.

Alas, a new exam format! It's a hybrid of the bar exam and the LSAT. Great stuff.
