Attorney General Eric Holder filed an eleventh-hour brief in the federal stop-and-frisk trial giving his support to imposing a federal monitor on the New York City Police Department. “It is the position of the United States that, should the court find that the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk practices are unlawful, the court has wide discretion to enter injunctive relief,” the brief reads. The judge overseeing the case would have the authority to appoint a monitor. The Bloomberg administration has argued the court does not have the authority to do so. The case that ended in May has brought a laser focus to an issue that is a touch point in the mayoral race.
