Appeals Court Upholds Ruling In Stop-And-Frisk Case
NEW YORK (UPI) — A Federal appeals court on Friday upheld a lower court’s ruling that the New York City’s stop-and-frisk policy is carried out in a discriminatory manner.
In August, Federal Judge Shira Scheindlin ruled that the city’s police officers sometimes carried out stop-and-frisk unConstitutionally and discriminated against people of color, WNBC reported.
Then, last month, Scheindlin was removed from the case and an appeals panel suspended the effects of a her ruling.
The city argued that suspending Scheindlin from the panel should also nullify her decision, however, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday upheld her ruling.
