#16-01 County of Los Angeles v. Financial Casualty & Surety Inc., S230213. (B257660; 240 Cal.App.4th 535; Los Angeles County Superior Court; SJ3898.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal affirmed an order granting a motion to vacate the forfeiture of a bail bond in a criminal case. The court limited review to the following issue: Does the authority granted a jailer under Penal Code section 1269b “to set the time and place for the appearance of the arrested person before the appropriate court and give notice thereof” make the appearance in that court on that date “lawfully required” for purposes of forfeiting bail under Penal Code section 1305, subdivision (a)(4)?

Review granted/issue limited: 01/13/2016 | Oral argument: 04/03/2018 | Decided: 06/25/2018
