Stop-and-Frisk Attorneys Oppose City’s Request to Stay Ruling

September 10, 2013

Adjunct Professor Jonathan Moore, writing for the attorneys for class plaintiffs, filed their opposition on Friday September 6th to New York City’s request that Southern District Judge Shira Scheindlin stay her historic decision and order in Floyd v. City of New York, which provides relief, including a court-appointed monitor, to reform the New York City Police Department’s Stop-Question and Frisk policy.  Judge Scheindlin ruled in August that the policy violates both the Fourth Amendment and the Fourteenth Amendment.  The plaintiffs argued the court should allow a court-appointed monitor to do his job and make the NYPD proceed with reforms on policies she found violated the Constitution. Professor Moore is one of the three lead counsel for the class plaintiffs.
