Why didn't they sue the state for $10 million or more?
The Central Park Five sued the city of New York and they got $50m out of it. It was a similar case with a false conviction but those teenagers did actually do something negative they just didn't do the crime they were accused of. Other cases have gone the same way where falsely accused people have sued the states and won. So, why didn't they do the same thing here? Seems to me to be very easy pickings and any lawyer would take this case for free just for a part of the profits at the end of the trial.share
