Linda Fairstein, the longtime New York City prosecutor involved in the infamous Central Park Five case, has been dropped by her publisher, Penguin Random House. Dutton, an imprint of Penguin Random House, confirmed to NPR that it and Fairstein "have decided to terminate their relationship” after a firestorm of criticism erupted over her work in the case that happened thirty years ago.

News of the separation comes two months after the publication of her latest novel, Blood and Oath and just days after the release of the Netflix-produced, Ava DuVernay directed miniseries When They See Us.
