Abstract This case, filed on Feb. 19, 2009, challenges the NYPD's subway bag search program. J. Sultan, a 32-year-old native New Yorker of Kashmiri descent, has been stopped and searched by police officers 21 times since the NYPD initiated the subway program in 2005. Most white New Yorkers have been stopped rarely, if at all. Sultan's South Asian appearance is the only factor that can explain this persistent targeting by police officers.
