When they hear us.
This time, Columbia University was forced to see and hear members of the distinguished Black Law Student Association as these future legal lions roared across this prestigious, picturesque Ivy League institution and called for the resignation of Elizabeth Lederer, a lead prosecutor in the Central Park Five case and a lecturer on their campus.
Lederer quietly resigned on the afternoon of Wednesday, June 12, 2019. It comes seven years after the same organization demanded that she resign following the airing of the 2012 documentary “The Central Park Five.”
