GOOD NEWS: Appeals Court refuses overturn of Stop & Frisk Ruling


Federal appeals court has denied a request to dismiss rulings that determined that New York City police conducted its police stop-and-frisk policy in a discriminatory manner, the Associated Press reports. 
On Friday, a three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued the five-page order during a scheduled appeal of U.S. Judge Shira Scheindlin’s decisions next year.

The panel  recently suspended the judge’s rulings and dismissed her from the case, arguing that Scheindlin misapplied a related ruling that allowed her to take the stop-and-frisk case. Additionally, she reportedly made statements to the media during a trial that raised questions about her objectivity, the AP reports. read story at Washington Post
