Mark Hamblett reports:

Southern District Judge Shira Scheindlin has been ordered off the stop-and-frisk cases by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

The circuit said the judge had given the “appearance of partiality” in her handling of Floyd v. City of New York, 13-3088, and it stayed pending appeal Scheindlin’s appointment of a monitor to reform New York City Police Department stop-and-frisk policies and practices she had held unconstitutional.
