City, Plaintiffs Reach Accord in Stop-and-Frisk

, New York Law Journal


In a complete turn-around from the dogged opposition by the former administration, Mayor Bill de Blasio said we "accept the facts and road map laid out" in Judge Shira Scheindlin's "landmark ruling" and vowed to follow through on reforming NYPD policies and to keep a court-appointed monitor on the job.

    Bravo, Mayor de Blasio. Proud of you.Judge Scheindlin’s service to New Yorkers and the Constitution has been acknowledged and honored by Mayor de Blasio’s principled act to admit the abuse of stop-and-frisk. The Law Department, now presided over by Zack Carter, will honor the law rather than seek to make legal that which isn’t. Nazi Germany’s Nuremberg Laws taught us that making “evil” legal isn’t lawful, but ultimately, a war crime. Seeking to legalize unconstitutional behavior legal isn’t honest or honorable. There are more cases in the Law Department’s inventory that need to be addressed; we are prosecuting one such case, presided over by Judge Koeltl, which exposes the defective school disciplinary system potentially injuring 1.1 million school kids with false charges being levied, known to be false when made, just to victimize the innocent. For public service lawyers to assist in the harm will cost taxpayers even more in damages let alone the wrong lesson taught kids in school that truth and actual innocence don’t matter. Now, thankfully such behavior will run afoul of Corp Counsel Carter and Mayor de Blasio. It is a bright new day for a unified City that respect-in-fact the Constitution. /s/Ravi Batra
