The Judicial Council of California voted to end the COVID-19 emergency bail schedule, as California begins a phased re-opening and courts restore services shuttered due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Judicial Council voted 17-2 to rescind, effective June 20, the COVID-19 temporary bail schedule that set presumptive bail at $0 for people accused of lower-level crimes, a measure to curb the spread of COVID-19 in jails and surrounding communities.

At the same time, California Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye rescinded her statewide order (link) extending time for defendants to be arraigned. That change would require defendants again be arraigned within 48 hours.
