Judgment Affirmed Againsf LR Sfore LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The state Supreme Court affirmed today a $1,000 judgment against a Little. Rock department store in a-false-arrest suit. Margaret Stuckey- won the judgment after filing suit in connection with her arrest on December 22, 1972 in Pfeifer's of Arkansas in Little Rock by an off-duty but uniformed Little Rock policeman who was employed at the store to deter shoplifting. .The officer, Trent Spalir, arrested Mrs. Stuckey ' and charged her iwith- shoplifting.

Spalir testified that he -believed Mrs. Stuckey had passed the scarf to another woman who left the store when Spalir was arresting Mrs. Stuckey.'

The owner of Pfeifer's, Dillard Department Stores, Inc., contended that it was not libel for the $1,000.
