Conversion is a tort involving injury to property, in which one wrongfully exercises or assumes authority over another’s goods depriving the owner of their possession. In order to prove conversion, you must establish that (1) you have the right to possess the personal property, (2) you have been deprived of such possession through the defendant’s intentional conduct, and (3) resulting damages. When these elements are met, the owner is entitled to recovery regardless of whether the conversion occurred in good or bad faith.
