A New York City federal judge ruled that the city’s stop-and-frisk policy is a violation of the Fourth and the 14th amendments of the U.S. Constitution.

The ruling states the burden on the plaintiff caused by the stop-and-frisk policy “far outweighs the administrative hardships the NYPD will face in correcting its unconstitutional practices.”

As part of the ruling from Judge Shira A. Scheindlin, said she would designate an outside lawyer to monitor the NYPD and ensure they stay within legal boundaries of the Constitution.
