NY judge orders NYPD to end stop and frisks outside some Bronx buildings absent specific cause

A federal judge has ordered New York City police to stop making trespass stops outside certain privately owned buildings in the Bronx without reasonable suspicion.

Manhattan Judge Shira Scheindlin made the ruling Tuesday as an interim order before a trial on a lawsuit filed against the city.

The judge says it is not enough for a police officer to have a non-specific suspicion or hunch about a person to perform a stop and frisk.

The case is one of three lawsuits challenging the police department's stop and frisk practices.

The case Scheindlin ruled on is the narrowest of the three. It deals with legal issues raised after the city first adopted a stop and frisk law in 1964.

The city did not immediately comment.
