Fowler v. Perry
Court of Appeals of Indiana
830 N.E.2d 97 (Ind. Ct. App. 2005)
Fowler (plaintiff) and Perry (defendant) lived and had a child together while unmarried. During that time, Fowler gave Perry an engagement ring that cost $5,499. Approximately one year after receiving the ring, Perry moved to Indiana with their child while Fowler remained in Missouri to finish school. Before he was able to join Perry and their son, Perry broke off the relationship. At the time, Fowler did not ask Perry to return the engagement ring. When she sought to pawn it, the ring was stolen from her car. Perry received insurance proceeds for the stolen ring in the amount of $5,000. Fowler filed a lawsuit against Perry to recover the value of the ring. The trial court decided in favor of Perry, and Fowler appealed.
