British Film Director and Others Sue L.A. County Sheriff Over Illegal Detention, 'ICE Holds'

"British film director Duncan Roy is suing the Los Angeles County Sheriff after, he claims, he became 'lost' in the prison system for three months - with no option to post bail and no legal recourse.  The director was caught in what the LA Times called a 'Kafka-esque corner of America's immigration war', after his name was flagged up by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement." - U.K. Daily Mail, Oct. 19, 2012.
