People v. Am. Surety Ins. Co., No. G040720

Judgment in favor of the People forfeiting bail after a motion to set aside the forfeiture was denied is reversed as the trial court lost jurisdiction to forfeit bail when the case was not called on the date set for arraignment by the jailer, and there was no jurisdiction on a later arraignment date set by the district attorney.
