Former Judge Shira Scheindlin's decision calling NYC's stop and frisk practice unconstitutional was a point of contention between Donald Trump, Republican presidential candidate and Lester Holt, debate moderator.

Candidate Trump called Judge Scheindlin a "very against police judge."  Judge Scheindlin disputed that characterization in an interview with the Daily News, stating that she was very respectful of police and reiterated her view on stop and frisk did not apply to the tactic in general. "I found that stop and frisk as practiced in New York is unconstitutional," said Scheindlin. 

Like her famous Zubulake and Pension Committee opinions, the stop and frisk case was very controversial and required multiple opinions.

Jason Krause interviewed Judge Scheindlin upon her retirement and joining Stroock & Stroock & Lavan. Asked about her pro bono plans, Judge Scheindlin stated, "I would like to be involved in public service in the area of prison, police, hospitals, education and areas where I can do some good. If there is litigation, perhaps I can help settle it or help work out a consent decree. I have always been interested in civil rights issues and would like to get involved."
