Fresno Co. Judge rules in favor of Sheriff Mims in jail layoff dispute

FRESNO, Calif. Details from the ruling order the Fresno County Board of Supervisors to rescind its earlier decision telling the county's administrative officer to block Sheriff Mims' layoffs of 23 correctional officers.

No word yet on what Sheriff Mims will do, but in the past she had planned to close a floor at the jail because of the layoffs, which would likely prompt the early release of inmates.
