Quasi-contract-ual rights are usually not personal and such as are not personal may be assigned,1 including quasi-contractual rights which arise out of tort where the injured party may waive the tort and sue in assumpsit.2 The right to recover money paid by mistake,3 or to recover money paid at an erroneous tax sale,4 or to recover for taxes paid under protest,5 or to recover money lost at gambling,6 or to recover money paid for intoxicating liquor,7 may each be assigned. So the right of an insurance company to be subrogated to the rights of a mortgagee to whom the company has paid a loss, may be assigned.8 A right to recover in assumpsit against a director or officer for fraudulent mismanagement,9 or for incurring debts before the proper amount of stock had been subscribed,10 or for overdrawing an account,11 may be assigned. A right to sue for use and occupation of lands which are held wrongfully by the possessor, is assignable.12 The right of a surety to enforce contribution from co-sureties may be assigned to one of such sureties.13 The assignment of rights of action arising out of tort and treated as rights of action ex delicto, is not considered here.
