The creation of a public defender’s office in Alamance County solves the last problems at issue in a federal lawsuit over policies in Alamance County courts on people who are newly arrested and requirements for posting bond to get out of jail, according to a recent court filing.

According to a joint status report filed with U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina all parties have agreed to file for the lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union and others to be dismissed. However, the plaintiffs will ask for the court to order the defendants to pay attorney fees and court costs.
