A jury of ten men and two women was selected Tuesday in the $25,000 false imprisonment suit instituted by Fred PATTISSON, chauffeur, against his former employer, Nicholas J. McNAMARA of San Mateo, which opened for trial Tuesday before Superior Judge BUCK. Following is the jury:
Orin DAVES, salesman, Portola
J.J. MAHONEY, contractor, San Bruno
L.J. FLANDERS, foreman, San Bruno
Ella H. TALBOTT, housewife, Daly City
Edward MOORE, farmer, Pescadero
Edward GREELEY, farmer, Woodside

Julia IAGO, housewife, South San Francisco
N.A. ARMOS, laborer, Pescadero
Jesse PALMER, farmer, San Gregorio
Peter LIND, butcher, South San Francisco
O.E. ELGER, retired, Burlingame
During the examination of the talesmen the attorneys for PATTISSON revealed that their case would hinge principally on the alleged fact that McNAMARA testified falsely before the Grand Jury and that this resulted in the return of the indictments against the chauffeur on a charge of stealing his auto.
McNAMARA’s defense is that, believing he was injured, he brought the matter to the attention of the proper authorities.
Miss Gladys McNAMARA was an interested spectator throughout the day’s proceedings. She will be one of the principal witnesses in the case.
Chief of Police D.A. WHITE of San Francisco appeared as a witness for the plaintiff. District Attorney FICKERT of San Francisco also was a witness for McNAMARA.
Joseph J. DUNNE, James HANLEY and Albert MANSFIELD are the attorneys for PATTISON. E.H.CUNHA, John C. QUINLAN and E.F. FITZPATRICK represent McNAMARA.
