[PER PRESS ASSOCIATION.] Action For X<ul*« Imprisonment. Auckland, July 8. An action for false imprisonment, brought by Thomas George Savage of Mata, Tauranga, against Henry Robart Burt, of the same place, has just been concluded at the Supreme Court. The circumstances are that in April last William Savage, brother of plaintiff, eloped with Burt's daughter, Laura, aged sixteen, and they lived in the bush for a fortnight. Burt suspected the Savages, who are half-castes, and when Tom Savage refused to help to find the girl, Burt had him arrested. At the Police Court Burt asked for an adjournment, but it was refused, and the charge of abduction against William Savage was dismissed, and that against Thos. Savage withdrawn. Thomas Savage then served Burt with a writ claiming £200 damages. The case was heard before Justice Connolly, who gave judgment for defendant, with costs.
