Georgia case won't be justices' last chance on bail reform
While the U.S. Supreme Court recently rejected a case challenging a Georgia town's policy to wait up to two days before offering arrestees a chance to prove they can't afford bail, a growing split among appellate courts could pressure the justices to tackle wealth-based detention in the near future. The denied petition, Walker v. City of Calhoun, centers on the detention of a 54-year-old unemployed man who was arrested for being intoxicated in public in September 2015.
