It's time again for Did You Know? On Fridays here at Escheatable, we provide you with interesting information regarding the unclaimed property laws to amaze your friends and frighten your enemies. Today's entry is from Oregon:
I'll have a beer. And may I see your book of consigned baggage?
According to Oregon law, "When personal property is consigned to or deposited with . . . [a] tavern keeper . . . [he or she] shall immediately cause to be entered in a book kept by the consignee or bailee a description of such property, with the date of its reception."
Or. Rev. Stat. 98.110
