As to the main product itself, it is a complete presentation of the three cases brought against O.J. Simpson,

This is the most televised case in the world and it is used to compare and contrast criminal v civil trials. I have added into this mix the third element, O.J.'s criminal conviction in Nevada.

In June 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were fatally stabbed outside Brown's condominium in Los Angeles, California. O.J. Simpson was subsequently arraigned on a double murder charge which meant no bail and a possible death penalty verdict. Simpson pleaded not guilty to both murders.

The O. J. Simpson murder case (People v. Simpson) was a criminal trial held in the Los Angeles County, California Superior Court, Judge Lance Ito presiding. The prosecutors, Marcia Clark and Christopher Darden, held it in a highly black area which resulted in a mostly black jury. Simpson hired a team of lawyers, including F. Lee Bailey, Robert Shapiro, Alan Dershowitz, Robert Kardashian, Gerald Uelmen , Carl E. Douglas and Johnnie Cochran. Attorneys specializing in DNA evidence, Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld, were hired to discredit the prosecution's DNA evidence. Simpson's defense team, dubbed the "Dream Team" by reporters, also argued that LAPD detective Mark Fuhrman planted evidence at the crime scene because he hated blacks.

The jury returned a not guilty verdict on Simpson, acquitting him of the double murder. In post-trial interviews with the jurors, a few said that they believed Simpson probably committed the murders but that the prosecution bungled the case.

The Civil Case Brought By The Families: The jury unanimously found there was a preponderance of evidence to find Simpson liable for damages in the wrongful death of Goldman and Brown.

O.J. Las Vegas-Criminal Case-Robbery: A group of men led by Simpson entered a room in the Palace Station hotel in Las Vegas and left with various sports memorabilia and one phone. A jury unanimously found Simpson guilty on all 12 counts against him, including robbery and kidnapping charges. He was sentenced to 33 years in prison.
