False imprisonment case.
I think we missed a point when we discussed this in class.
At the end of the opinion was this:
Appeals in Faniel v. Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Co., 404 A.2d 147-52 (D.C.1979):
"t is not enough for plaintiff to feel 'mentally restrained' by the actions of the defendant. The evidence must establish a restraint against the plaintiff's will, as where she yields to force, to the threat of force or to the assertion of authority."
restraint against her will...to the assertion of authority
These were security staff who told her she would be arrested. That is assertion of authority. I think that would be a question of fact for the jury.
