An inmate currently serving time in Miami-Dade jail is drawing attention after testing positive for COVID-19. A federal judge noted that the inmate appears to be adequately isolated, but she also ordered the parties to address alleged claims of insufficient care and why a hearing on bond revocation has not been held in state court.
A U.S. district judge in Miami has decided to wait on ruling on an emergency motion for the prisoner to be released immediately on bail, who is the designated plaintiff in a pending class action calling for medically disabled prisoners to be released from a detention center in Miami-Dade County. The judge also says that she was not yet able to answer the appeal for release on a habeas corpus writ from the inmates.
