Order Granting Summary Judgement in Caliste v. Cantrell - U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana (2018) 

08-07-2018 11:07

This is an order granting summary judgement in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. The Court here denied summary judgement for the defendant, granted summary judgement for the plaintiff and provided for declaratory relief. In doing so, the Court highlights that the questioned bail procedures violate Plaintiff's equal protection and procedural due process rights and entitle them to summary judgement. The Court then lays out the Due Process requirements for hearings where pretrial detention is determined. The Court also points to the inherent conflict of interest present, when the same official is determining ability to pay bail, and the amount of that bail, and also managing the funds collected from fees on that bail.
