Seventh Circuit Upholds $30 Booking Fee For Being Arrested

The decision is here, with a vigorous dissent by Judge Hamilton. Hat tip: Mike Scarcella.

UPDATE: Exchange from comments:

Nick: So if Mr. Markadonatos had refused to pay the booking fee, would [he] have been refused booking?
Miles: No. He would have been arrested again for violating the ordinance. Another $30.
