  • The court held that the city was liable for violating the plaintiffs' Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights, due to the police department's widespread practice of suspicionless stops and frisks of African-American and Latino suspects. In a separate order issued the same day, the court ordered a series of remedies, including the appointment of a monitor, immediate reforms to the stop-and-frisk program, revisions to training programs, changes to stop-and-frisk record-keeping, changes to supervision and discipline, the institution of a pilot project providing for the use of body cameras by police officers, and a joint remedial process to ensure continued community input.
