Explain.

Explanation & AnswerSolution by a verified expert

Explanation

Individual S is the person with the voidable title here since the deal was made with a minor. But according to Section 2-403 of the Uniform Commercial Code, the person with the voidable title has the ability to transfer a valid title to a buyer who buys the goods in good faith and for value.
 
In this case, Individual T has a valid title of ownership of the car. Individual J cannot have the car back form Individual T since Individual T has a valid ownership of the car.

Verified Answer

Individual J cannot regain the ownership of the 2016 car since the ownership of the car has been transferred to Individual T, who bought the car in good faith and for value from Individual S.
