(AP) - Johnnie L. Cochran Jr., who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in December 2003, died Tuesday at his home in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles. He was 67. Cochran's legal career representing both victims of police abuse and celebrities in peril converged under the media glare when he successfully defended O.J. Simpson from murder charges.

good riddance.

He set a double murderer free.
I thought it was the judge and jury that did.

No...the outright stupidity of the prosecution set OJ free.

Cochran had nothing to do with it.

I witnessed the same prosecution and they convinced me that OJ was guilty.
