The “Room for Debate” column in “The New York Times” explores many of the issues surrounding the Central Park Jogger case including the civil rights suit brought against New York City by the five men whose convictions were overturned. Pace Law School Professor Adele Bernhard, the Director of the Post-Conviction Project at Pace Law, provides a lawyer’s perspective, one of five opinions featured in the column “Room for Debate.”
