Rosie Perez - Perez Sues Law & Order: Svu Bosses

Rosie Perez is suing producers behind Law & Order: Svu after suffering an injury on the set of the U.S. TV crime drama in 2009.
The actress claims production company bosses' negligence led to her sustaining a herniated disc that required two surgeries after an extra physically shook her while shooting a scene for the show.
Perez's lawsuit, filed at Brooklyn Supreme Court in New York, accuses Northern Entertainment Productions and Ddf Films of "recklessly and carelessly failing to provide skilled performers or experienced stunt personnel".
Her lawyer Brian O'Dwyer tells the New York Daily News, "The thing to do was taking someone who knows what he's doing to make it look violent without being violent. This person was not a stuntman, he was just an extra.
"I guess he got carried away with the scene... There was pressure on her to continue and finish up the episode and she did."
Perez is seeking unspecified damages, although her attorney calls it a "very, very substantial case".
