The Nashville Community Bail Fund is at the center of a bail reform conflict following a May 6 court order that threatens to significantly alter the way the nonprofit operates, the Nashville Scene reports. The order came after a hearing in April called by Nashville’s Criminal Court judges. The hearing raised questions about bail-fund clients who had failed to appear in court, and led to an order that says going forward, various fines, fees, court costs and restitution will be taken out of bail money before it is returned to the fund, which was previously exempted from such costs.
