"The savings in time alone, as you try to prepare for an initial or detention hearing, makes the Handbook a bargain.” —Defense Magazine
The Bail Reform Act of 1984 and its legislative history are lengthy and complex. Yet all participants—lawyers, judges, and others—are required to understand it thoroughly and apply it swiftly and effectively, often under the pressure of a detention hearing.
The Honorable John L. Weinberg’s Federal Bail and Detention Handbook 2012 provides the busy practicing lawyer or judge with a quick and clear reference to the Act and the relevant statutory language, legislative history and appellate case law.
Judge Weinberg has included “Practice Pointers,” 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.
The new paperback format of this 2012 edition has been tailored to help readers find answers in a hurry. Its size permits it to be carried conveniently to and from the courtroom.
Lawyers new to hearings on release and detention in federal court will find the book a useful basic course as well.
“…a must for judges, U.S. attorneys, and defense counsel.”
