LBREPORT.com is separately aware of a March 25, 2021 opinion by the CA Supreme Court that effectively struck down CA's cash bail system (after CA voters' approved the cash bail system in a Nov. 2020 ballot measure.) The high court held that "a court must consider the arrestee’s ability to pay the stated amount of bail and may not effectively detain the arrestee 'solely because' the arrestee 'lacked the resources to post bail'..." There's no indication the Court opiniom played a role in this arrestee's no bail release.
