City of New York, a Federal Civil Rights Trial brought by the Center for Constitutional Rights over the NYPD’s controversial policy. During the course of the day, a March 5th, 2013 memo surfaced ordering change in Stop and Frisk Policy. Now NYPD must write a narrative detailing circumstances of stops.
