O.J. Simpson Suit Bound For Smithsonian

by at . Comments

Most times when you talk about suits and O.J. Simpson, they're of the legal variety. People suing the knife-wielding maniac for wrongful death and whatnot.

This time, though, the topic is a suit the notorious murderer wore when he was somehow acquitted of murder by a jury jam-packed with idiots back in '95.

Those fine threads may be headed to the Smithsonian Institution.

After a court hearing Monday, which followed years of squabbling, lawyers for O.J. Simpson and Fred Goldman both agreed to donate the "acquittal suit."

Here's the historic judicial system failure in question ...

The judge called O.J. from prison, where he's serving a 15-year term for armed robbery and kidnapping, to get his approval. Simpson's lawyer said he agreed.

Provided no one makes money off it, that is.

David Cook, Goldman's lawyer, says, "The donation to the Smithsonian of the acquittal suit puts front and center the shock to America when justice escaped the Los Angeles courthouse. The memory of Ron Goldman shall be on permanent display."

"If the suit is the emblematic of justice gone berserk, justice is served."

Goldman has been relentlessly trying to cash in on everything Simpson-related since winning a $30-million-plus civil judgment for O.J. killing his son.

No word if the Smithsonian will accept the thing, or if Christie Prody has changed her name and signed up for a witness protection program yet.
