"Class Action Granted in Second of Three Stop-and-Frisk Cases"

FourthAmendment.com summarizes this post from Law.com. In part:

The second of three major cases alleging the New York City Police Department engages in an unconstitutional pattern of stopping and frisking people without a reasonable suspicion that they are engaged in criminal activity has been deemed a class action.

Southern District Judge Shira Scheindlin on Feb. 11 certified a class in Ligon v. City of New York12-2274, a case where black and Latino citizens in the Bronx allege police have been illegally stopping and frisking them as they enter and exit buildings that take part in a police crime-fighting program.
