    Famed attorney Alan Dershowitz is hooked on 'The People Vs O.J. Simpson:
    American Crime Story' because he was a member of O.J. Simpson's so-called
    "Dream Team." Dershowitz says the squad of lawyers being called the "Dream Team"
    is a farce. "It was a nightmare team," he said. "The lawyer's egos were clashing.
    Everybody was trying to take credit. We won, not because we were good but because the prosecution so was so bad."

    If I was in trouble I can only dream that Cochran would be my lawyer, God rest his soul.

    wrong. Garcetti never should have tried the case in LA.

    it was all about the jury.

    There was so much evidence, he should have never been acquitted. You could have had OJ kill both of them right in front of that jury and they would have still let him go.

    Prosecution was not great...I feel like Police ineptitude contributed as well and maybe the jury selection was flawed but that's just my own memory and its a long time ago.

    My high school newspaper's editor's dad was a local newscaster and the kid got to go to the OJ trial because his dad got him in. We had front page coverage of the OJ trial in our high school newspaper. What a waste of time and paper.

    "We won, not because we were good but because the prosecution so was so bad."

    Hmmm, I always thought OJ won because there would have been riots otherwise. Seemed the jury was basically too scared to vote any way but not guilty... :dontknow:

    The lesson to be learned from this is that using racial epithets is a worse crime than murdering two people! :grad:
