NEW YORK - The city's biggest police union sued the City Council yesterday over a law recently passed that makes it easier for people to bring racial profiling lawsuits against the NYPD.

The PBA says the law violates the state's criminal procedure law and would cause officers to second-guess their actions in emergencies.

The City Council overrode Mayor Michael Bloomberg's veto of the measure. It says it will vigorously fight the suit.
