NYC stop-and-frisk appeal could be over after mayoral election

NYC stop-and-frisk appeal could be over after mayoral election

The fate of a federal appeals court block of a judge’s ruling that found the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk policy discriminated against minorities depends on the outcome of next week’s mayoral election.

The ruling is on hold pending the outcome of an appeal by the city, and the fight could be ended if Democratic candidate Bill de Blasio wins. He has said he would drop objections to the ruling.
