Step 1: Research the following topic and post a short (250-word) response to the questions on the discussion board.
Last Friday, Patricia was in the order line of the local fast-food restaurant when she saw a crumpled bill on the floor. Thinking it was a one-dollar bill, Patricia reached down to pick it up (she would have reached down to pick up a penny as long as it was “heads-up!”). When she unfolded the money, Patricia discovered (much to her amazement) that it was actually a one-hundred dollar bill. Patricia quickly lost her appetite, stuffed the one-hundred dollar bill in her pocketbook, and went home. Assess Patricia’s rights regarding her discovery. More particularly, does she have the legal right to keep the money?
