Hudson Valley residents split over Lawrence Taylor suit

Hudson Valley residents have mixed opinions over the lawsuit filed by the now-18-year-old woman who is suing former New York Giants great Lawrence Taylor for compensatory and punitive damages.

Taylor admitted to having sex with Christina Fierro, who was 16 at the time. He was sentenced to six years of probation under a deal to plead guilty to sexual misconduct and patronizing an underage prostitute.

Some residents say Fierro has a right to "seek justice" in the case, while others argue the case is over and she shouldn't be suing at all.
