Aug 10 2021

A handful of scenes from the award-winning “When They See Us” series about the Central Park Five could be misconstrued by viewers as “based in fact,” a federal judge wrote Monday, allowing a defamation suit by ex-Manhattan sex crimes prosecutor and author Linda Fairstein to proceed.

District Judge Kevin Castel ruled five scenes in the 2019 series portraying Fairstein — who oversaw the team seeking convictions of five teens arrested for the rape and beating of jogger Trisha Meili in 1989 — could be seen as defamatory.
