Stephen Patterson held an account with Suntrust Bank in Alcoa, Tennessee. Juanita Wehrman—with whom Patterson was briefly involved in a romantic relationship—stole his debit card and used it for sixteen months (well beyond the length of their relationship) to make unauthorized purchases in excess of $ 30,000. When Patterson learned what was happening, he closed his account. The bank refused to reimburse him more than $ 677.46—the amount of unauthorized trans-actions that occurred within sixty days of the transmittal of the bank statement that revealed the first unauthorized transaction. Is the bank’s refusal justifiable? Explain.
