1.P was traveling from Westchester County Airport to San Francisco. Because there are no direct flights from Westchester to anywhere at all, Ps itinerary called for him to change planes at Chicagos OHare airport. P was an obstinate passenger and continuously challenged the flight attendants authority and resisted obeying directions. When the flight arrived in Chicago, airline officials told P that they would not permit him to board his connecting flight to San Francisco or, indeed, to board any flight. P, having only his airline ticket and $10.00 was unable to leave the airport for five hours until his cousin from St. Louis drove to pick him up. On these facts, is there false imprisonment by the airline?
A. Yes, because P was unable to leave the airport for five hours.
B. No, because P was not restrained in a bounded area.
C.Yes, because the airline breached its contract of carriage with plaintiff.
D.No, because it was Ps own fault that the airline would not transport him further.
2.D, emerging from a local grocery store, saw P, a teenager, placing leaflets on car windshields, including Ds. D accosted P, grabbing him by the arm, and demanded that P return to Ds car and remove the leaflet. P struggled, but was unable to break Ds grip. D berated P for about a minute and then released him. On these facts, is there false imprisonment?
A.No, because an outdoor parking lot is not a bounded area.
3.Ps 15-day sentence for shoplifting was up. State law requires jailers to release prisoners at noon on the last day of confinement. On this day, the jailer was interrogating a suspect in a murder case and did not open Ps cell door until 1 p.m. On these facts, is there false imprisonment?
A.Yes, because the jailer had an obligation to release P at the appointed time.
B.No, provided that the jailer was not the official who originally confined P.
C.Yes, provided that P suffered physical injury or economic loss because of the delay.
D.No, because P was confined pursuant to judicial order.
