On Thursday, the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia refused to hear the District’s appeal on the legality of  D.C. police checkpoints. On July 10, a unanimous three-judge panel of that court ruled that the police checkpoints -- which started in Trinidad -- were unconstitutional.

The District’s only recourse at this point is to take its case to the Supreme Court.

AG Peter Nickles tells City Desk: “I’m disappointed. We’ll look at our options including a Supreme Court request… The D.C. Circuit has spoken and we’ll take it from there.”
