False Imprisonment / Malicious Prosecution

For example, merchants are permitted to take reasonable actions to stop theft, but “reasonable” sometimes becomes the subject of litigation. The firm’s experienced attorneys stand ready to defend both businesses and government agencies, as well as their employees, accused of false imprisonment or malicious prosecution.
