Comptroller calls for resolution in ‘Central Park Five’ lawsuit

The five young man wrongly arrested in a vicious beating and rape of a Central Park jogger are now backed by city Comptroller John Liu, who is calling for the speedy resolution of a $250 million lawsuit against the city.

“I’m deeply disturbed by the fact that this civil rights case remains unresolved a decade after its convictions were vacated,” Liu said.

The five men were arrested in 1989 in a case that would make national news when a female jogger was attacked in Central Park and left for dead.
