Project #26721 - Discussion Board Discussion

Chapter 21: Are They Conditional or Unconditional Gifts

Need 1/2-3/4 page answer to the discussion board question below.  Must watch attached powerpoint presentation befoe answering so your answer is based on what we are learning in this chapter.
__________________________________________________________________________________________

Dr. Bob, age 58, is an extremely wealthy, attractive, and physically fit local surgeon who has never married. One day, while working out at a local health club, Dr. Bob meets Susie, who is extremely attractive and extremely intelligent, having a doctorate degree from a prestigious institution (undoubtedly Stevenson). The two start dating, and Dr. Bob showers Susie with gifts (fur coat, television, VCR, jewelry, works of art, etc.). After several months, they announce the date of their wedding, which is six months away. He gives her a lavish diamond engagement ring and continues to shower her with gifts (personal computer, sports car, shares of stock, stereo system, microwave oven, additional jewelry). They fly to Paris to celebrate their engagement, with Dr. Bob paying for the entire trip, although Susie offers to share the cost. On the date of the wedding, Dr. Bob is there, but Susie is a no‑show. She has loaded up her gifts and moved to another town. Dr. Bob hires an investigator, who serves Susie with papers to rescind all the gifts Dr. Bob made or, if she does not have the articles, to obtain the fair market value of the gifts. Susie maintains that there was intent and delivery, and because the gifts are executed, Dr. Bob cannot get them back.

 

Would you allow Dr. Bob to get all of his gifts back or allow Susie to keep all of the gifts?  What if Susie makes a living by doing this to Dr. Bobs all over the country?  Discuss the fairness of Susie keeping the gifts and what, if anything, Dr. Bob could have done to prevent this.
