A Case of Excellent Attorney Work: OJ Simpson Trial

On October 3, 1995, OJ Simpson was ruled not guilty by jury in a court of law for the murder of his ex wife and her boyfriend.  Based on the evidence, it was apparent that OJ was guilty, but his excellent team of attorneys managed to poke holes in the Prosecutors' case and essentially bail OJ out of a crime he apparently committed.

Whether you think he was guilty or not, this job by OJ's attorneys was a classic case of talent winning out. OJ totally got bailed out

  20. Cases like this point out the bigger flaw in the legal system: Humanities lack of logical reasoning. The legal team did a good job, though, no doubt about it.
