In November 2016 ArchCity Defenders filed a federal class action lawsuit against the city of Maplewood for “implementing and enforcing an illegal, racially biased cash bail system that exploits low-income people in order to generate revenue,” according to their press release at the time. It isn’t known if the revised rules addresses this.
