The Federal Bail and Detention Handbook 2013 is now available. This soft cover treatise has been published to help readers find answers in a hurry and its size makes it convenient to be carried to and from the courtroom.
The Bail Reform Act of 1984 and its legislative history are lengthy and complex. Yet all federal court participants–lawyers, judges, and others–are required to understand the Act thoroughly and apply it swiftly and effectively, often under the pressure of a detention hearing.
Authored by the Honorable John L. Weinberg, this title provides the busy practicing lawyer or judge with a quick and clear reference to the Act and all of the relevant statutory language, legislative history and appellate case law.
Judge Weinberg has included “Practice Pointers,” which is designed to provide defense counsel and Assistant U.S. Attorneys with strategic suggestions for dealing with the Act. The Handbook’s Table of Cases lists every federal appellate decision of significant precedential value that interprets or applies the Act.
