Welcome to Justiceline, ThinkProgress Justice’s morning round-up of the latest legal news and developments. Remember to follow us on Twitter at @TPJustice

  • A federal judge is allowing the New York Police Department to temporarily resume stop-and-frisks in the Bronx deemed illegal until she can determine an appropriate remedy.
  • Many First Amendment experts are questioning a D.C. judge’s decision to ban entirely from the district a protestor who climbed a tree and screamed that abortions caused the massacre in Newtown, Conn. during the Presidential Inauguration ceremony in Washington, D.C.
  • The legal fight over Pennsylvania’s voter ID law has been set for trial in July. A judge temporarily halted the ID requirement before the November election.
  • A federal appeals panel unanimously struck down as unconstitutional an Indiana law that banned sex offenders from “using a social networking website” that they knew minors had access to, finding that it was overly broad. A similar Louisiana law was invalidated last February.
