Appeals Court Won't Toss Out NYC Stop-and-Frisk Ruling

A federal appeals court has refused to toss out court rulings finding that New York City carried out its police stop-and-frisk policy in a discriminatory manner.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Friday. Last month, an appeals panel had suspended the effects of a lower-court ruling.

The city had argued that the panel's decision to remove federal Judge Shira Scheindlin meant it should also nullify her rulings.
