Members of the O.J. Simpson defense "dream team" were back in action 17 years after the legendary murder trial, this time defending the name of their late colleague, Johnnie L. Cochran Jr. It all started last week in New York, when former Simpson prosecutor Christopher A. Darden alleged to a law school audience that Cochran tampered with the infamous "bloody glove," a key piece of evidence in the murder case. During the trial in the stabbing deaths of Simpson's former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Lyle Goldman, Simpson tried on bloody gloves.

Simpson to answer questions about his alleged adulterous affairs, his relationship with Los Angeles police officers, his physical condition and other topics. Simpson submitted to 10 days of grilling this winter, answering many detailed questions from lawyers pressing a wrongful-death suit against him. But he has refused to return for another round.

O.J. Simpson on Monday lost a second bid to obtain records he says can pinpoint the time his ex-wife spoke on the phone with her parents on the night--exactly six years ago Monday--that she and a friend were slain on the steps of her Brentwood condo. Simpson was acquitted of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Lyle Goldman but was held liable for their deaths in a subsequent civil trial. He was seeking the phone records, which he says prove his innocence, to help overturn the $33.

Simpson was ordered to pay $33.5 million to the plaintiffs.

It's back. But where it's been remains a mystery. O.J.

An employee of estate attorney Ira Friedman turned the trophy over to sheriff's deputies who staff the courthouse about 10 a.m.

O.J. Simpson, who showed up for a court hearing in ragged pants with a hole in the back, said Friday that he has no money and would have to move out of his Brentwood mansion because of the wrongful-death damage award against him.

Asked if he would move, Simpson said: "It's emotional a little bit, but I'm prepared to move."

In a strange postscript to the O.J. Simpson legal saga, an Orange County attorney has filed a workers' compensation claim against Mezzaluna restaurant in Brentwood, seeking to recover Ronald Lyle Goldman's death benefits for the state of California. Attorney Nick O'Malley is pressing his case even though the state agency that oversees such work-related disputes chose not to pursue the matter after Goldman was killed nearly three years ago.

Raising fresh questions about the integrity of evidence, one of O.J. Simpson's lawyers said Tuesday that he has been unable to track down a swatch containing a blood drop collected from Nicole Brown Simpson's back gate. The drop was lifted from the back gate two weeks after Nicole Simpson and Ronald Lyle Goldman were murdered. Prosecutors touted the drop--found to contain genetic markers consistent with O.J. Simpson--as part of the "trail of blood" linking the crime scene to Simpson.

Ronald Goldman's divorced parents reached agreement Wednesday on how to divide the $8.5 million a jury awarded them for the loss of their son--but future negotiations could prove much tougher as the three parties with claims on O.J. Simpson's assets struggle to sort out who gets what. Wednesday's agreement grants Fred Goldman 85% of the compensatory damage award. His former wife, Sharon Rufo, will receive 15%. By law, the two must split in equal shares the $12.

Fred Goldman wept--and twice turned to glare at O.J. Simpson--as he told jurors Monday that the murder of his 25-year-old son, Ronald, had ripped an unimaginably painful hole in his life. Compelled to describe the depth of his love in order to establish the magnitude of his loss, Goldman broke down several times as he reminisced about his son, choking up over memories that every parent could relate to--from Ron's habit of missing the school bus to their days in the Indian Guides youth program.
