Professor Scalia Lectures Breyer On Bailment Law

March 20th, 2013

Remember, the bailor is the person who gives the thing to be held, and the bailee is the person who receives the thing to be held, says Professor Scalia.

JUSTICE BREYER: Now, can an acquirer of my car, for example — I don’t know. Forget that.

JUSTICE SCALIA: A bailee? (Laughter.)

I taught bailment law for the first time a few weeks ago. I don’t think I ever learned this at any point in law school.
