Netflix Vs. Linda Fairstein

Netflix and Ava DuVernay against Linda Fairstein continues to battle. It has been reported that a judge just denied their request to throw the lawsuit out of court due to Linda’s defamation claim over her “evil” portrayal in “When They See Us.”

 

Linda states it slanders her

New legal docs were released and obtained by TMZ, where it states a federal judge in Manhattan ruled Monday Linda’s defamation suit reasonably alleged slander in exactly 5 scenes of the critically praised series concerning the Central Park 5 case. Just in case if y’all forgot…Linda was the woman who served a big part in the prosecution of now-vindicated Central Park 5, while Felicity Huffman was cast as her in the Netflix series.

The judge ruled various scenes portraying Linda as racist while conducting a police roundup of possible suspects in Harlem, keeping DNA evidence from the defense and forcing statements that could confirm to be abusive and can’t be thrown out at this stage of prosecution.

 

Netflix vs Linda Fairstein (Previously)

Back in March 2020, Linda sued Netflix and the series director for defamation, claiming the show represented her as a “racist, unethical villain who is determined to jail innocent children of color at any cost.”

Netflix originally declared the lawsuit was meaningless and attempted to get it tossed by debating the series is defended by the First Amendment. Even though some of Linda’s claims were tossed, the judge ruled the case will move forward on her claims focusing on the critical scenes in the series.
