CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. — A wealthy couple accused of forcing two Indonesian housekeepers to serve as slaves in their New York mansion can be freed on bail, a federal appeals court said.

The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said in the ruling made public Monday that appropriate bail release orders should be executed based on the government's conclusion that there were conditions that would assure that the couple did not flee.
