Mayor Bloomberg has asked the federal judge who blocked stop-and-frisk to put a hold on her own decision.

City lawyers argue that the ruling would cause “irreparable harm” and take away the department’s primary tactic of combating crime.

A meeting between a federal monitor and the New York City police department has been scheduled for September 4th.
