Judge lets NYPD resume stop-and-frisk

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) -

A federal judge is allowing the New York Police Department to temporarily resume some controversial Bronx residential trespass stops.

Judge Shira Scheindlin decided Tuesday to lift the order she issued earlier this month while the city appeals.

The judge said she still believes she was correct. She found that the city acted unconstitutionally in making trespass stops without reasonable suspicion at thousands of privately owned buildings.

She said the city had shown it would be expensive to immediately implement an order that could be reversed.

A trial in March is set to decide the fate of a lawsuit challenging more broadly the city's stop-and-frisk practices. The judge refused a request by the city to delay that trial.
