Notes of Decisions

Where plaintiff was mis­takenly arrested following computer retrieval of identifying and locator data for an individual of similar name, demurrer as to 3 of defendants was properly sustained because plaintiff failed to allege sufficient facts from which duty to plaintiff could be discerned and summary judg­ment as to 2 of defendants was improperly allowed because affidavits did not reveal whether defendants’ acts were discre­tionary or ministerial. Murphy v. City of Portland, 36 Or App 745, 585 P2d 732 (1978)
