Supreme Judicial Court, Superintendence of inferior courts.  BailSurety.

Queila Alcedina Lopes and Angelina Placido acted as sureties for the defendant, Gilmar A. Bartieri, in the District Court, and posted a total of $ 50,000 in bail on his behalf.[1]  After Baratieri subsequently failed to appear for a hearing on March 30, 2015, a judge ordered the bail forfeited.  Prior to that, the sureties had filed a motion for return of bail, on the basis that Baratieri could not appear for the hearing because he was in Federal custody, on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer.[2]  The motion was denied.  The sureties then filed a petition pursuant to G. L. c. 211, § 3, in the county court, asking the court to order return of bail.  A single justice denied the petition, and the sureties filed a notice of appeal. read more
