'Wilding' Redux

Big story tonight in NYC, as the city gets subpoenas seeking outtakes from upcoming Ken Burns' doc on the infamous Central Park Jogger case.  You may recall that five black teens were twice convicted in the brutal beating and rape, and confessed, only to be freed years later when another man confessed and his DNA matched crime scene. 

The freed five are now suing the city, which wants Burns' outtakes of interviews with them.  Burns complains that this comes after the city resisted his attempts to get interviews with officials.
