A federal court has agreed to drop the city's stop-and-frisk appeal.

This after Mayor Bill de Blasio fulfilled a campaign promise by announcing he would drop the appeal of a lower-court decision that found the New York City Police Department's use of stop-and-frisk to be discriminatory.

The police union had lobbied to take over the litigation.

The New York Civil Liberties Union says that the court's action will finally allow a settlement to be negotiated.

De Blasio has said that he would agree to the appointment of a monitor for the police department.
