PER CURIAM

Defendants Lane County and the City of Eugene petition for reconsideration of our decision in Stone v. Finnerty, 182 Or App 452, ___ P3d ___ (2002), in which we upheld the trial court's dismissal of several of plaintiffs' claims but reversed the trial court's grant of summary judgment on plaintiffs' false imprisonment claims against these two defendants, and remanded. Defendants argue that only plaintiff Byron Stone raised a claim of error based on the dismissal of his false imprisonment claim, that plaintiffs did not assign error on appeal to the dismissal of plaintiff Wanda Stone's false imprisonment claim, and that therefore we should not have remanded Wanda's false imprisonment claim to the trial court. We agree. Our opinion referred to "plaintiffs' claims," and remanded "on the false imprisonment claims," but it should have been limited to a remand of only plaintiff Byron Stone's claim for false imprisonment as against these two defendants.

Reconsideration allowed; former opinion modified; reversed and remanded for trial on plaintiff Byron A. Stone's claim for false imprisonment against the City of Eugene and Lane County; otherwise affirmed.
