The city officially drops its appeal of a federal court ruling that found police sometimes used stop-and-frisk in a discriminatory way.

The move has been expected for several months since Mayor Bill de Blasio backed a settlement with the plaintiffs that includes reforms to the NYPD.

Last week, another court blocked an attempt by police unions to take over the appeal process from the city.

The Law Department filed papers with the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals—the last step that needed to happen before city can implement the reforms called for by the settlement.
