Lawsuit dismissed against Amy Cooper for calling Black Birdwatcher police in the viral Central Park video
40-year-old Cooper was accused of falsely reporting an attack in October when it was revealed that Christian Cooper had falsely reported her after her first phone call to the police to report an alleged threat. The Manhattan Attorney’s Office offered her the opportunity to enter into a program in exchange for dismissing the case. Details of the offer were only released on Tuesday.
“After five sessions, Ms. Cooper’s therapist reported that it was a moving experience and that Ms. Cooper learned a lot from their sessions together,” said Illuzzi. Illuzzi also noted that Christian Cooper refused to attend the criminal trial.
