AS 45.03.418. Payment or Acceptance By Mistake.
- (a) Except as provided in (c) of this section, if the drawee of a draft pays or accepts the draft and the drawee acted on
the mistaken belief that payment of the draft had not been stopped under AS 45.04.403 or that the signature of the drawer of the
draft was authorized, the drawee may recover the amount of the draft from the person to whom or for whose benefit
payment was made or, in the case of acceptance, may revoke the acceptance. Rights of the drawee under this subsection
are not affected by failure of the drawee to exercise ordinary care in paying or accepting the draft.
- (b) Except as provided in (c) of this section, if an instrument has been paid or accepted by mistake and the case is not
covered by (a) of this section, the person paying or accepting may, to the extent permitted by the law governing
mistake and restitution, recover the payment from the person to whom or for whose benefit payment was made or, in the
case of acceptance, may revoke the acceptance.
- (c) The remedies provided by (a) or (b) of this section may not be asserted against a person who took the instrument in
good faith and for value or who in good faith changed position in reliance on the payment or acceptance. This
subsection does not limit remedies provided by AS 45.03.407 or AS 45.04.407
- (d) Notwithstanding AS 45.04.215
, if an instrument is paid or accepted by mistake and the payor or acceptor recovers payment or revokes acceptance
under (a) or (b) of this section, the instrument is considered not to have been paid or accepted and is treated as
dishonored, and the person from whom payment is recovered has rights as a person entitled to enforce the dishonored
