Issues: (1) Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit erred in asserting authority to review respondents' interlocutory challenge to pretrial physical restraints and in ruling on that challenge notwithstanding its recognition that respondents' individual claims were moot; and (2) whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit erred in concluding that the Fifth Amendment forbids the U.S. Marshals Service for the Southern District of California, with the approval of district judges in that high-volume jurisdiction, from implementing a policy of placing pretrial detainees in physical restraints during non-jury court proceedings.
