Judge lets NYPD resume 'stop and frisk'

The city had shown it would be expensive to immediately implement an order that could be reversed

Associated Press

NEW YORK — A federal judge is allowing the New York Police Department to temporarily resume stop-and-frisk stops she believes are unconstitutional while the city appeals her decision.

Judge Shira Scheindlin on Tuesday lifted the order she issued earlier this month concerning a program aimed at thousands of privately owned buildings in the Bronx.

The judge had found that the city acted unconstitutionally in making trespass stops without reasonable suspicion.

Scheindlin says she still believes she's correct but the city had shown it would be expensive to immediately implement an order that could be reversed.

A trial in March is set to decide the fate of a lawsuit more broadly challenging the city's stop-and-frisk practices. The judge refused a request by the city to delay that trial.
