Topics not treated here are those concerning many financial matters, such as interest owed on closed bank deposits or notices of stock dividends to stockholders whose addresses have changed or who have died or otherwise changed their legal status, or the many ways in which automobiles may be abandoned such as in parking garages, repair shops, or on the sides of highways. This chapter also does not treat the issue of lost livestock, as the rules concerning livestock are astonishingly complex and varied. These tables address representative topics that will answer some of the more interesting and more common questions that arise in the field.
As a result, for many uniform acts, there are as many variations as there are states. The UUPA is no exception. To date, 40 states have adopted some version of the UUPA, but even states that have not adopted it have adopted something very similar.

That case is not helpful to its cause. As the Supreme Court stated in Chase,. In Chase, the Court expressly declined an invitation to reconsider Campbell, which had established the same proposition in no uncertain terms.
To restore a remedy lost through mere lapse of time, however, does not violate due process in the absence of a showing of "special hardships or oppressive effects. Accordingly, Riggs had no constitutionally protected expectation which Section , as construed by the trial court, could or did impair. We are also unable to discern in the present case anything even approaching a "special hardship" or an "oppressive effect.
Rather, the result for which Riggs contends would amount to "the attempted interposition of the defendant's private escheat law [which] is clearly opposed to the spirit and essence of the public custodial escheat law and to the broad public policy represented thereby. Jefferson Lake Sulphur Co. It would preserve for several more years "a private escheat law whereby the holder rather than the state would enjoy the benefit of the unclaimed property. At the very least, a finding of hardship or oppression depends on a showing that the equities favor the claimant.
As the trial judge pointed out during argument below,. Indeed, counsel for Riggs effectively acknowledged in the trial court that the equities on this issue were not in his client's favor.
Riggs also claims that it relied to its detriment on the expiration of the statute of limitations because its "conduct would have been different if the present rule had been known and the change foreseen. The bank says that it "maintained no special reserves against the day when the Superior Court's construction of a recent statute would attempt to resurrect such long-interred liabilities. Instead, it "took the statute of limitations at its word and received into income the amount of the lapsed claims, duly paying all required taxes on that income. The District points out, and Riggs apparently does not deny, that if Riggs has paid taxes on property which it converted to income, it will have a roughly comparable reduction in taxes after the property is delivered to the District.
This is no hardship or oppression, special or otherwise. The contention made by WABA and joined by Riggs that Section should be construed not to reach the disputed funds in order to avoid a constitutional issue need not detain us long. Statutes are to be construed "so as to avoid serious doubts as to their constitutionality Beck, U. United States, 60 App. WABA's theory that the application of the UPA to funds taken into income amounts to an uncompensated taking was not raised by Riggs in the trial court.
Even if it had been, it would necessarily fail, for the funds as to which delivery was ordered were not the property of Riggs. Under the trial court's decree, the District simply replaces Riggs as their custodian. We conclude that Riggs must report and deliver to the District the funds in the first disputed category without regard to the date Riggs received them, whether or not they were carried on the bank's books as income, and regardless of the alleged expiration, before or after January 1, , of any statute of limitations.
This result is consistent with the language of the UPA and with its legislative history. Neither the statutory policy favoring uniformity of decisions under the UPA nor the Constitution supports a contrary holding. District Unemployment Compensation Bd. On the question of the disputed dormant accounts apparently owned by residents of other jurisdictions, we conclude that the letter of the statute must prevail.
We have considerable sympathy with what the judge had to say, for the District has made a persuasive showing that the judge's interpretation is consistent with what a legislative body seeking to vindicate the purposes of the Act might well have intended. The problem is that this is not what the Council said. Section of the UPA, D. United States v. Schaeffer, F. Section provides that the presumption of abandonment applies if the conditions described in sections and through , which deal with specified periods of inactivity, are satisfied, and if "the last known address of the apparent owner Section 3.
The District does not contend that it has established, with respect to the dormant accounts apparently owned by non-residents of the District, that the states in which these owners reside do not have escheat or abandoned property laws applicable to the property. It thus cannot claim that the conditions precedent set forth in the statute have been satisfied. Indeed, when asked at argument whether he acknowledged that the statutory language was contrary to his position, counsel for the District responded "I have to. The District contends that Section "must be read as simply establishing a statutory set of priorities when States file claims with the District in accordance with [Section ].
The District's burden to show that such surgery is required must necessarily be a heavy one. The Corporation Counsel makes the following argument against the result to which a literal interpretation of Section seems to lead us:.
District Brief at footnote and citation omitted. We find this reasoning to be quite compelling. New Jersey, supra, and because the result urged by the District would subject Riggs to the threat of multiple liability. Neither contention is persuasive.
Bill Text: WA HB1179 | 12222-2020 | Regular Session | Introduced
In Texas v. New Jersey, the Court decided that the State of the owner's last known address has first priority to his unclaimed property. Relying on its earlier decision in Western Union Telegraph Co. Pennsylvania, U. The Judiciary Committee referred repeatedly to the decision in Texas v.
New Jersey, and we think it fair to conclude the legislation was enacted with that case in mind. We do not believe, however, that Texas v. New Jersey bars the District from reaching the accounts in question. That case dealt with the competing claims of different jurisdictions for escheat of the same property.
Riggs Nat. Bank v. District of Columbia
The Court was not confronted with, nor did it decide, the relative rights to custody of abandoned property as between a private holder and a State. The UPA is not an escheat statute, and by taking custody of abandoned property from a private holder, the District does not divest the priority jurisdiction of custody or title.

Consistent with the treatment of property in which there is no last known address and where the jurisdiction of the owner's last known address has no applicable abandoned property law, it would be consistent both with Texas v. New Jersey and with the general philosophy of the Act to permit the District to retain the property for itself until some other State comes forward with proof that it has a superior right to it.
