    Judge Shuts Down ‘Making a Murderer’ Detective’s Defamation Suit Against Netflix

    Judge Shuts Down ‘Making a Murderer’ Detective’s Defamation Suit Against Netflix

    A judge dismissed the defamation lawsuit filed by a retired Wisconsin detective against streaming giant Netflix for their portrayal of him in the 2015 documentary series “Making a Murderer.” Retired Manitowoc County detective Andrew Colborn claimed the series painted him as a corrupt law enforcement officer, stating viewers could infer he framed Steven Avery, which he denies, from their presentation of the case. First Amendment expert Floyd Abrams breaks down the case with the Law&Crime Network’s Angenette Levy, an expert on the case whose reports were shown throughout the popular true crime series.
