SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- After 13 years of legal battles,
O.J. Simpson, his former agent, and Fred Goldman have agreed to
donate Simpson's so-called "acquittal suit" to the Smithsonian
The agreement came Monday during a court hearing after a judge
called Simpson at a Nevada prison where he is incarcerated. His
lawyer said Simpson's only requirement was no one should profit
from the suit, shirt and tie.
Simpson's former agent Mike Gilbert, who has posession of the
clothing, came up with the idea of a donation to end years of
disputes. He said neither he nor any of the lawyers had contacted
the Smithsonian to see if they want it. If not, the agreement says
they will designate another museum or institution of higher
learning to accept it.
