Confusion of Goods
CONFUSION OF GOODS
A blending together of property individually owned by two or more people so as to make it impossible to distinguish who owns what.
A confusion of goods results when the property belonging to two or more persons becomes so intermixed that it can only be identified as a large mass of goods. This might apply to such substances as oil or grain.
Generally, a wrongful, willful, or fraudulent intermingling of goods by an individual with the goods of another person results in forfeiture to the other person of all rights and interest in the resulting mixture.
