Police wanted to overturn a ruling stating their tactics were at times discriminatory.

A judge has rejected police union efforts to overturn a court ruling that said the city's stop-and-frisk tactics were at times discriminatory.

It was decided that the original ruling did not damage the reputations of police unions. However, they sued to get that overturned after the city settled the case, agreeing to make reforms to ensure there is no discrimination against minorities.
