Fordham Professors Talk to Brian Lehrer about New York City Policies

Submitted by on March 26 – 2013No Comment

Brian Lehrer of WNYC has hosted two Fordham Law professors this month.

The first was Professor Nestor Davidson, on March 12, who discussed the Judge Tingling’s ruling that blocked the city’s soda ban. Currently the city has challenged the block. Davidson, who teaches New York Law, explained the judge’s ruling that the law was “arbitrary and capricious” and that it exceeded the Department of Health’s authority.

On March 19, Brian Lehrer spoke with Professor Ian Weinstein, associate dean for clinical and experiential programs. They discussed the city’s stop and frisk policy, which is currently in court. According to Weinstein, the court will likely find constitutional issues with some parts of the program. However, he says that the court won’t likely invalidate the entire policy, as some “stop and frisk” opponents would prefer.
