Review the following article from The Alabama Lawyer about a case that arose right here in our jurisdiction. The article begins on page 37.
Compare the facts of that case with the account of another shipwreck dispute found below.
In your textbook, we learned that a thief acquires no title to stolen goods and therefore cannot convey good title. Given what we also learned about salvage law, who do you feel had the superior claim to the coins recovered in each case? Be sure to address arguments for the other parties and explain why they are not convincing to you. Your response should be between 150 and 300 words.
