The federal judge who found the NYPD's use of stop-and-frisk unconstitutional denied the city's request for a stay on her ruling while the decision is appealed. Judge Scheindlin reasoned that the city's attorneys "presented no cogent argument that they are likely to succeed on appeal." City officials have so far only been directed to meet with the new monitor to discuss ways to implement remedies she ordered. The city is now looking to the appellate court to expedite their appeal.
