City Agrees to Stop-Frisk Reforms as Mayor Seeks to Drop Appeal

Source: NBC 4 New York

Lawyers for the plaintiffs in New York city's stop-and-frisk court cases say the city and the plaintiffs have reached an agreement for a monitor to oversee reforms of the police tactic.

Lawyers for the Center for Constitutional Rights said Thursday that the deal calls for the reforms to take place under a scenario set down by a federal judge last year.

They say the deal calls for a monitor to serve a three-year term. The monitor will oversee a process in which those communities most affected by the stop-and-frisk tactics will provide input into reforms.

The announcement came shortly after the administration of Mayor de Blasio filed court papers seeking to drop and appeal of the judge's findings.
