Mayor de Blasio has agreed to withdraw the city’s Appeal from the Federal District Court  decision rendered by Judge Scheindlin. The city asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit to return the case on appeal back to the Federal District Court in New York.

Once the N.Y. Federal Appeals Court returns the case back to the N.Y. Federal District Court, Judge Torres will implement the agreement reached by the sets of Plaintiffs who filed the original two suits against the City of New York.

In the lower court decision decided by Judge Scheindlin, she “ordered the appointment of a monitor to develop, in consultation with the parties, widespread reforms of the department’s policies, training, supervision, monitoring and discipline regarding stop-and-frisk” and that process will go forward as part of the agreement.
