Bull v. California Youth Authority

Bull v. California Youth Authority, a taxpayer lawsuit, challenged the California Youth Authority for failing to carry out its statutory duty to inspect and monitor jails in which children were incarcerated for over 24 hours. This lawsuit was dismissed after defendants agreed that they would notify jails, which detained dependent children and status offenders, that they would be closed unless those children were removed; and defendants would send the Youth Law Center inspection reports of all jails, which were found in violation and in which a notice was issued.
