William H. Bailey, MD, executed a note payable to California Dreamstreet, a joint venture that solicited investments for a cattle breeding operation. Bailey’s promissory note read, “Dr. William H. Bailey hereby promises to pay to the order of California Dreamstreet the sum of $ 329,800.” Four years later, Dreamstreet negotiated the note to Cooperative Centrale Raiffeisen Boerenleenbank B. A. (Cooperatieve), a foreign bank. A default occurred, and Cooperatieve filed suit against Bailey to recover on the note. Is the note executed by Bailey a negotiable instrument?
