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?


No, unless she was drunk.

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.


Hey!! The only reason I paid $20 for that nasty levi jacket was for the supercool rhinestone lined pockets....
