Prosecutors and officials who were responsible for sending the "Central Park Five" to prison in 1989 are facing backlash after the airing of Netflix miniseries When They See Us. Elizabeth Lederer, who was the lead prosecutor on the case, will not be returning to Columbia Law School as a part-time lecturer this fall, following the fallout from the miniseries. Her appointment had previously been protested by the school's Black Law Students Association.
