Texas among 6 states backing Harris County's bail battle at Fifth Circuit
from Houston Chronicle
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and the top lawyers in five other states are backing Harris County in its protracted battle over money bail for poor low-level defendants, as the tally of those released on no-cash bail nears 1,000. Paxton and the lead attorneys in Arizona, Hawaii, Kansas, Louisiana and Nebraska filed a joint brief late Monday supporting the county's appeal of a federal court order that took effect three weeks ago eliminating cash bail for indigent misdemeanor defendants.
