Yup.Next torts question:Does conversion require that you permanently deprive the owner of control of their chattel?
Prof characterized conversion as a forced sale. Tortfeaser is forced to buy the chattel they took or damaged.
here's an easy one.Is conversion of the car keys the same as conversion of the car?
Conversion of the keys is conversion of the car. The fact that there may be another set of keys elsewhere doesn't change it.Russell-Vaughn Ford v. Rouse, 281 Ala. 567, (Ala. 1968)
The keys control the car. Just because P could get another set of keys doesn't change the fact that the tortfeasor converted the controlling instrument of the car.
