Portland To Appeal Part Of Judge's Order On Police-reform Hearings

(Portland, OR)  --  The City of Portland will appeal part of a federal judge's order regarding hearings to track the progress of the city's police reforms.  "The Oregonian" reports the Portland City Council has approved a request by Mayor Charlie Hales to file the appeal.  Hales and city commissioners oppose the judge's order to continue oversight of a settlement agreement between the city and the U.S. Department of Justice on police-reform efforts.  Judge Michael H. Simon has already approved the agreement as "fair, reasonable, and adequate."
