Pretrial detainee’s bail is set at $1 mil even though officials find he is unlikely to abscond or commit new crimes. (He’s been in jail since last July.) Grant him habeas? Prosecutors: No objection here; this is probably unconstitutional. California courts: Still, habeas denied. District court: Not for us to interfere in an ongoing state proceeding. Ninth Circuit: Give him a new bail hearing within two weeks or let him go (pending trial).
