Creation of a Bailment Relationship

Consider the following scenario:
Jeff is an avid UNC–Chapel Hill basketball fan and drives to the Greensboro Coliseum to watch his beloved
Tarheels play in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) basketball tournament against their arch-rivals, the Duke
University Blue Devils. When Jeff arrives at the parking lot, he pays $20 to the attendant for parking and takes
a ticket. On the ticket is printed “WARNING: Not responsible for damage to personal property while on
Greensboro Coliseum premises.” He parks his car, puts his keys in his pocket, and enters the Coliseum.
Jeff is overjoyed as he watches the Tar Heels beat the Blue Devils by 30 points. Returning to his vehicle, he is
shocked to see his windshield bashed in and surmises that the perpetrator must have been a Blue Devil fan—
after all, a large, heavy Blue Devil statue now protrudes from Jeff’s Carolina-blue car’s windshield! Jeff also
surmises that the vandal is probably long gone by now (since the Tar Heels were leading by 25 points at
halftime) and already well within the protective confines of the stone wall surrounding Duke University 60 miles
away.
In a one- to two-page letter, advise Jeff of his legal rights against the Greensboro Coliseum for damage to his
vehicle.
