Kanyé West and the Law of Bailments

A bailment is a legal relationship that arises when a person (the bailor) gives personal property to someone else (the bailee) for safekeeping. So, can a bailee use a disclaimer to eliminate or limit his or her legal responsibility to the bailor for theft or other form of property damage to the bailor’s property? Attorney Van O’Steen explains here why parking lot disclaimers are not always effective.
