William M. Bost, Jr., Vicksburg, Miss., for plaintiff-appellant.
John E. Stone, Jackson, Miss., for defendants-appellees.
Before TUTTLE, TJOFLAT and HILL, Circuit Judges.
United States Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit.
TJOFLAT, Circuit Judge:
In this diversity and 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1976) action for false arrest and imprisonment, the district court directed a verdict, at the close of all the evidence, for the City of Jackson, Mississippi and nine City police officers or jailers. While the court was correct in entering judgment for some of the defendants, as to others a jury question was presented. Accordingly, we affirm in part and reverse and remand in part.
