    Linda Fairstein, the prosecutor involved in the “Central Park Five” case, was reportedly dropped by her publisher amid the fallout from a Netflix series about the conviction—and eventual exoneration—of five teens for a 1989 rape. Dutton spokeswoman Amanda Walker told the Associated Press it had “terminated its relationship” with Fairstein, a best-selling crime novelist whose most recent book came out in March.

Fairstein told the New York Post that the show portrayed her inaccurately.
