The AP is reporting that the new stop-and-frisk regulations proposed by Judge Shira Scheindlin in August will be blocked at least temporarily, and that Scheindlin will be removed from the case entirely. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decided to hold Scheindlin’s rulings–which would install a federal monitor to oversee the NYPD and require some officers to wear lapel cameras–until the results of a city appeal come in.
Scheindlin was removed for her (admittedly pretty obvious) anti-stop-and-frisk bias. From the AP:
The appeals court said the judge needed to be removed from the case because she ran afoul of the code of conduct for U.S. judges by compromising the necessity for a judge to avoid the appearance of partiality in part because of a series of media interviews and public statements responding publicly to criticism of the court.
