THE BRONX - Bronx residents are weighing in on a Federal Court appeal on the NYPD's controversial Stop and Frisk policy.

A U.S. Court of Appeals has put on hold Judge Shira Scheindlin's decision that ruled the policing practice "unconstitutional" and would require changes to the policy.

The court removed Judge Scheindlin from the case, citing she violated the code of conduct for U.S. judges by conducting media interviews during the hearing.

Judge Scheindlin's ruling would have created an independent overseer to monitor the controversial practice.

The Appeals Court is expected to assign a new judge to the case.
