PBA PRESIDENT SPEAKS TO
STOP AND FRISK INTERVENTION RULING

 

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said: 

“We disagree with the outcome in the district court inasmuch as it is clear that prior rulings and the proposed settlement of the case will substantially impact NYC police officers.  We will appeal to the special appellate panel who retained jurisdiction over this matter and our hope is that they will permit the unions to intervene to fully and fairly represent the interests of their members in this process.  The unions' participation has become even more important given that the settlement of the case was reached by parties that appeared to have interests that became allied after the recent election with no party representing the interests of the employees who will be most impacted.  It is unfair and inconceivable that employees would not be allowed in this process.”
