Comm393 – 101    Oct 3, 2008  Prepared by:  Akina Wong,  Ada Liu,  Annie Lu,  Adam Tsin,  Edmund Chan Kovacs v. Holtom Facts: In 1992, the Plaintiff agreed to purchase from the Defendant a   RESTORED   1963 Falcon  future convertible for $2,500.00. The Plaintiff paid the full amount up front. Both parties agreed that the Defendant was to retain the vehicle for purposes of restoring it.  In 1995, the vehicle was destroyed by a fire that occurred in the garage owned by the  Defendant. At the time of the fire the Defendant had undertaken considerable work on the vehicle as is  shown by the Summary of Material and Labour which reflects the restorative work done.  At the time the  fire occurred, the  restorative  process was not completed, nor had the  Defendant notified the Plaintiff that the restoration had been completed. The vehicle was still in the possession of the Defendant for purposes of completing the  restoration. The Plaintiff admitted that the presumed cause of the fire was arson by a person or persons  unknown because three other vehicles owned by the Defendant were also been destroyed.  Issues: 1. Is the Defendant liable to the Plaintiff for the loss of the car? 2. What remedy does the Plaintiff have against the Defendant? Reasons:
