Suit worn by O. J. Simpson during 1993 murder trial donated to museum





Like everything to do with the celebrated murder trial, O.J. Simpson’s courtroom clothing is a part of American history — or is it?

The suit that the former American football star was wearing in court when he was acquitted on October 3, 1995, is now to be donated to a museum.

A bitter legal battle over the tan suit, patterned tie and white shirt ended in Los Angeles on Tuesday with a deal to preserve the clothes for posterity.

Fred Goldman had been trying for years to seize the clothing to settle a $33.5 million (£22.5 million) wrongful death civil judgment against Simpson for killing his former wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Mr Goldman’s son Ronald.
