If A Jacket Is Stolen From Coat-Check Who Is Responsible For The Loss?
Topic: Transfer case service cost
June 17, 2019 / By Carroll Question:
If the club where the Grand Larceny occurred (coat $4,000) switches names and owners?
Coat-check ticket says not responsible for items left over night--ONLY. Incident reported that night to host and General Manager (ironically her boyfriend). Complaint filed with local prescient shortly after.
Yes...I understand that the club should be responsible. But my Q was more concerning the transfer of liability from past owner to present owner. For example, a new owner assumes a past owner’s debt, but does s/he also take on any legal matters—or one such as a stolen jacket from coat-check.

First glance of the above description appears to be a disclaimer which cannot be used to substitute negligence of staff duties.
Due Negligence or lack of Care of Duty, barring appropriate evidence and past trend of customer expectations of the level of service from the club, is not a valid excuse.
Transfer of ownership in full, barring escape clauses, includes the transfer of all assets and liabilities of the club.
It should also reason that all risk and rewards of the business as an enterprise in view to profit, with legal rights and obligations, are transferred.
Were legal rights and obligations not transferred to the new business formation, profits and losses in substance, would be attributable in proportion to the business arrangement in force prior to the acquisition.
In less common cases where prior management retains control, they would bear the costs and reap the rewards of enterprise.
Regardless the controlling position, the petitioner (plaintiff) has a statutory time frame to seek legal remedy through a small claims court for the above alleged claim not honoured by the defendant in view to demand relief.
Obtain professional opinion and retain evidence to bring against the defendant (the club) on grounds of lack of reasonable care of duty expected of a club or its adequacy of procedures in reasonably keeping safe the possessions of their customers; a constructive argument of precedents may be used to form the case.
Depending on the nature of customers and existing repute of the club, both positions may be vulnerable to leverage over the monetary cost of seeking legal remedy.
In the later of the above position, it will be in the interest of the company to settle out of court; services of a professional will not be required.
Lastly, once certain of the legal position, stand resolute in the face of probable barrage of excuses claimed as legal shields whilst being mindful of the time and money incurred in litigation as opposed to what one could be doing in lieu of litigation.

Originally Answered: If my employer writes a bad check is he responsible for covering overdraft fees?
He is responsible for the returned check fee, and whatever legal penalties associated with this.
However, unfortunately the overdraft fees are your responsibility. It's your job to keep tabs on your account and to make sure everything is okay. You can't make any assumptions. Especially in the information age, where you can get up-to-the-minute banking information from your cell phone.
Even though the ticket says not responsible, you have a rightful claim to sue if you "paid" for the coat check. You should sue them and I guarantee you will win, because think about it, you paid them money to provide a service (hold your coat) and you received a "ticket" so that only the rightful owner of the ticket gets his/her jacket... this is a perfect case for Judge Judy... I watch that program religiously and believe me, you will win the $4000.

The Club is responsible...previous owners - unless the buy out by the new owners makes them responsible for previous debts

The club would be responsible. I would ask them for the money in a certified letter. If they refuse to pay take them to small claims court.

Crimes are not transferable by purchase...
It depends what the disclaimer said on the ticket, and/or what was posted on the wall...
Maybe you/she needs a new boyfriend?

Here are some links with info on Hurricane Diane that you may want to skim through and see if they contain any of the info you're needing.
Here is the best link I can find for you. It doesn't have the full story of the accounting of the death toll but it does give detailed accounts by state down near the end of the article. It is from the Chester Times on August 20, 1955. http://www3.gendisasters.com/connecticut...
It appears there is likely a story in the Chester Times from August 22, 1955 that probably has a more complete accounting of the death toll. I wasn't able to read through that story because the website I found it on charges for that. You may be willing to pay their fee of $5.99 for a month of access to their archives however so here is a link to where I found the article. http://newspaperarchive.com/chester-times/1955-08-22/
You can see from the small shot of the front of the newspaper that it talks about the death toll approaching 200. If you subscribe and have access to the archive you'll probably need to read through several days editions from that time period to get the best info.
I spent a couple hours researching the above info so I know you have a hard task ahead. I hope this is helpful and that you find what your daughter is looking for. Good luck!
