insertsnarkyusername: I'm curious how this would work out legally, she sold the coat (and everything in it) for 20 bucks. Does she have any right to recover this?


Actually, yes. Something like that qualifies as mislaid property under common law rules, which remains the property of the person who mislaid it. Legally, the earrings still belong to this women. Stupid, yes, but she has legal recourse.
