Rosie Perez Is Suing Law & Order Because of Back Pain

Rosie Perez played a mom married to a pedophile in a 2009 episode of Law & Order: SVU, and claims that she obtained severe neck injuries that required surgery, according to papers filed in Brooklyn Supreme Court. Perez claims that the show required multiple difficult takes that left her with a herniated neck. "This is a case of a woman being severely injured because someone wasn’t taking care of the people who work for them — and we’re going to make them pay," said Perez's lawyer, Brian O’Dwyer.
