William Bailey and William Vaught, as officers for Bailey, Vaught, Robertson, and Co. (BVR), signed a promissory note to borrow $34,000 from the Freedom National Bank. The interest rate was variable: “the lender’s published prime rate” plus 1 percent. Freedom went out of business, and ultimately, the note was acquired by Robin Hood Investments, Inc. When BVR failed to make payments, Robin Hood filed a suit in state court against BVR. BVR contended in part that the note was not negotiable because after Freedom closed, there was no “published lender’s prime rate” to use to calculate the interest. Did the note provide for payment of a “fixed amount of money”? Discuss fully.

Batman argued that the only requirement was that he notify the bank of any unauthorized signatures within a year. How should the court rule?
