Double Jeopardy in the U.S. does have some exceptions to it, and this might not be impermissible in the United State. There's generally three exceptions, and I'll discuss from most common to least common. First, I'd like to clarify two things: For my discussions the term "Event" will be used to indicate a specific alleged crime and will be specifically ...

They don't have to accept cash - they could make arrangements for you to return with a different card, for you to send a cheque through the post, for you to make a direct transfer to their account, or they could waive the cost of the meal. For all but the last option, you have a debt with them which they could recover through court if payment wasn't ...
