Second Circuit Court Grants Stay on Stop-and-Frisk Ruling, Removes Judge from Case

On October 31, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit granted the City Administration's request for a stay on the stop-and-frisk remedies mandated by the Federal District Court. The panel of three judges issued a two-page order, also removing the presiding Judge Shira Scheindlin from the case. The panel of three judges did not opine on the merits of the case, which will be heard in appeals trial scheduled for 2014.  For our full statement on this disappointing decision, please click here. The Center for Constitutional Rights, lead attorneys in the Floyd v. City of New York case, and the New York Civil Liberties Union both released statements as well. CPR will continue to press for the much need reforms of NYPD stop-and-frisk practices, including calling on the next Mayor to drop the appeal. Please check back on this page for further updates.
