“It’s Not Dead Yet” at Simple Justice has a very interesting commentary about the continuing saga of the stop and frisk case in New York.

A panel of the Second Circuit removed Judge Scheindlin despite the fact that no party asked for her removal.

Six retired federal district judges with 86 years of combined experience, together with a number of law professors – including professor Monroe Friedman – filed a brief supporting Judge Scheindlin.  In this brief they urged the Second Circuit, en banc, to reconsider the Panel’s October 31, 2013, Order, and the November 13, 2013, Opinion, and vacate the Order to the extent it reassigns the Floyd and Ligon cases from Judge Scheindlin to another judge of the Southern District of New York.
