Under contract law, a reward offer is binding, so that the offeror of a reward must pay a person who completed
performance for the offered reward.
A person has a responsibility to return lost personal property to its rightful owner.
The question posed by this assignment is: What happens if those two rules collide? What if Amanda finds Brenda's object and THEN Brenda offers a reward for the return of the object?
Can Amanda insist on the reward as a pre-condition for the return? Can Brenda retract that reward because Amanda had a pre-existing duty to return the property before the reward was offered? Or, do they both just sue each other to enforce their respective duties? Which of these alternatives (or something else) do you think will be enforced by a court?
Assume that both Amanda and Brenda live in the city of Beavercreek, Oregon and that all events involved in this assignment occurred in that city.
IRAC Style is needed, but just wanting to understand the situation.
