Irene Danopulos v. American Trading II LLC, Case No. 2018-1157
First District Court of Appeals (Hamilton County)
- If a pawnbroker complies with R.C. 4227.09 and R.C. 4727.12, must the original property owner, suing the broker for conversion, prove a demand was made to the broker for the return of the property and the broker refused before the property was resold?
- Does a pawnbroker sufficiently comply with R.C. 4227.09 and R.C. 4727.12 if the broker reports items it purchased to the county sheriff rather than the city police chief for the city in which the store is located?
- If the broker intentionally disassembled the merchandise for resale, is a property owner suing the pawnbroker for conversion exempt from proving a demand was made for the return of the property and the broker refused?
