Reynolds v. Bagwell
Supreme Court of Oklahoma
198 P.2d 215 (1948)
The plaintiff brought a replevin action against the defendant for recovery of a violin, violin bow, and violin case. The plaintiff alleged that the violin and accessories were stolen in 1933, and found in the defendant’s possession in 1938. The plaintiff further argued that the defendant had attempted to conceal the violin by removing its original varnish and altering its appearance. The defendant pled the two-year statute of limitations and asserted there had been no concealment. The defendant purchased the violin for his daughter for value from an established dealer. The defendant kept the violin in his sitting room, and his daughter carried it to and used it in her music lessons from various teachers. The jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff. The defendant appealed to the Supreme Court of Oklahoma.
