he was detained out-of-town. In fact, a month passed until Hotz returned to the hotel, and it was only then that he learned that Peet had left the ring for him at the hotel one month before. The ring was apparently stolen by an unknown thief after the hotel’s cashier placed the marked envelope on the counter right after Peet gave it to her. Can Peet recover the value of the ring from the hotel? 3. Arthur just took the bar exam. He is sure that he has failed. So sure, in fact, that he tells his classmate Charlie that Charlie can have the new laptop that Arthur planned to use in his law practice. Arthur explains that the laptop is being shipped from the manufacturer and should arrive at his home in three days. One day later, though, Arthur is killed in a car accident. Charlie asks Arthur’s heirs for the laptop, but they refuse to give it to him.

On a snowy night in February 1946, Bennie Ferrone attended the premier of the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" at the Lombard Theater. She loved the movie, but her joy disappeared a couple of days later when she realized that she could not find her wallet. She looked around the house and asked her children if they had seen it, but when she could not find it, she just shrugged her shoulders and assumed that it must have fallen out of her purse somewhere. Bennie died in 1982, devising all of her property to her son Werner. In February 1999, Werner received an e-mail from Larry Cucumber, an actor who explained that he had found the wallet behind a staircase in the Lombard Theater.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
