On September 4, 2018 the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit filed a ruling that laws in Boise, ID cruelly and unusally punish homeless individuals for sleeping and camping in public places (Martin v. City of Boise). In the ruling, the court concluded that "a municipality cannot criminalize such behavior consistently with the Eighth Amendment when no sleeping space is practically available in any shelter." To see the states affected by this ruling, please refer to the US Courts Districts Map
At the next General Membership Meeting of the PBCC, Commander Dickey of the Ventura Police Deparment will be discussing the actual and potential implications of this ruling on our neighborhoods. Please plan to attend.
