Central Park Five Case Will Settle

A little Ken Burns can go a long way. In 2003, the five juveniles released from a decade behind bars on a wrongful rape convinction sued the City of New York for the handling of their case. They came to be known as "The Central Park Five," and were the focus of a 2012 documentary by Burns. On Tuesday, the director told HuffPost Live that mayor-elect Bill de Blasio has agreed to settle the long-running case. "[T]hough this is justice delayed way too long...they will see some closure, they will be able to be made whole," Burns said.
