Rosenthal on the NY Stop-and-Frisk Opinion

Rosenthal_LawrenceLawrence Rosenthal (Chapman University - School of Law) has posted One-Eyed Floyd ( 162 U. Pa. L. Rev. Online 127 (2013)) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

This brief essay, prepared for the online supplement to the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, is a critical examination of the opinion of Judge Shira Scheindlin in Floyd v. City of New York, a case examining the constitutionality of the stop-and-frisk practices of the New York City Police Department. The essay explores flaws in the opinion, and argues that judicial efforts to regulate stop-and-frisk tactics could well harm rather than help the vulnerable residents of high-crime minority communities.
