Butcher v. Adams – Case Brief Summary (Kentucky)

In Butcher v. Adams, 310 Ky. 205, 220 S.W.2d 398 (1949) the plaintiff's testimony that he was humiliated by his false arrest on charges relating to the operation of his tavern was mitigated by evidence that he had previously been arrested on similar charges.

The court noted that this evidence was sufficient for the jury to consider whether the plaintiff had actually been embarrassed by the false imprisonment.
