NYC Drops Stop-And-Frisk Appeals

August 07, 2014  | 

The de Blasio administration on Wednesday formally dropped New York City’s appeal of rulings in lawsuits involving the NYPD’s use of stop-and-frisk tactics, reports the New York Post.

The city’s decision is aimed at speeding reforms it has already agreed to in a settlement.

After a judge last year concluded that the city sometimes discriminates against minorities with its stop-and-frisk program, police unions tried to get added as plaintiffs in the suits so they could appeal but another judge last week rejected the request.

The settlement calls for three years of NYPD oversight by a court-appointed monitor.
