Discussion Week 6 Discussion: Part 1 due Saturday, 11:59 pm ET; Part 2 due Tuesday, 11:59 pm ET Part 1 You and the other paralegals continue the discussion of false imprisonment during lunch. You propose the following hypothetical scenario. Scenario: Ella broke up with Nate and refused to talk to him. Nate saw Ella get into her car near the law school and parked right behind her so she could not move her car. He then stood next to the driver’s window for twelve minutes, begging Ella to talk to him. She kept saying, “No, let me leave!”. Has Nate committed the tort of false imprisonment? No, Nate has not committed the tort of false arrest. Restatement (Second) of Torts § 35 states that the actor is liable to another person for false arrest if (a) the actor intends to confine the other within the boundaries fixed by the actor, (b) the act directly or indirectly results in such a confinement of the other, and (c) the other is conscious of the confinement or is harmed by it.
