Therefore, Ames (the bailor) had a duty to warn Bailey concerning potentially harm-causing defects of which she (Ames) was aware. The brake problem would be such a defect.

Unformatted text preview: 23. The purse (including its contents) is probably mislaid property, because it seems that its true owner would have placed it in the chest of drawers on purpose. Presumably, she then forgot that the purse was there. If the purse is classified as mislaid property, Dorf has only the right to take possession of it and hold it as a bailee for the true owner. If the purse were classified as lost property, Dorf would have better rights to it than anyone except its true owner. Finally, if the purse were classified as abandoned property, Dorf could obtain ownership of it merely by possessing it with the intent of claiming ownership.
