Simpson is due to return to the courtroom Sept. 9 to fend off a civil lawsuit accusing him of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. Already, attorneys contesting the case have filed thousands of pages of dueling documents--generating more paperwork in the past few months than prosecutors and defenders did during the entire criminal trial.

For Barry Zeldes, the first inkling of trouble came half an hour after he opened his Brentwood men's clothing store on July 10--a regular customer phoned to berate him and say he was "ashamed" of him. Shortly afterward, another man walked into the store, Z 90049, and began screaming at Zeldes, concluding that the store owner should be shot. And that was only the beginning.

Who can believe the stunning speed with which the jury in the O. J. Simpson double-murder trial has reached a verdict? After more than eight months of testimony, 133 witnesses and 1,105 pieces of evidence, the jury of 10 women and two men--nine blacks, two whites and one Latino--deliberated less than a day. Even the lawyers were left speechless. Now the world is watching Los Angeles, waiting for the judgment to be made public.

Re Alan Dershowitz's column, "Wives Also Kill Husbands--Quite Often," Commentary, July 21: This is yet another blatant attempt to manipulate public opinion and reject the facts in the O.J. Simpson case. Dershowitz complains in his article that the government and the media have manipulated the figures to show that wives are the primary victims in spousal murders. Dershowitz then does some fancy manipulation of his own to support his conclusion. He neglects to take into account that many women who kill their husbands do so only after years of physical battering.

"White America Wants Simpson's Blood" (by Francis Ward, Commentary, March 6) offends me. It is perpetuating the very attitude that he decries. "The fallout will take years to settle"? It never even occurred to me to see this as a "black man . . . killed two whites" issue. When the news broke, my reaction was one of amazement that a celebrity was suspected of murdering two people. Shame on those who have tried to convince me that this was about race. PEGGY ALBRECHT Westlake Village It is really very sad that certain blacks have chosen O.J. Simpson as a symbol of their concerns about the justice system.

Saturday's secret lunch took six weeks of planning and a clandestine scouting mission by sheriff's deputies. Restaurant employees were told only that the guests at the three tables overlooking the ocean and happily munching on calamari were members of a VIP charity group.

Who are the victims of spousal abuse? Last year in California, 93% of the people arrested for spousal abuse were men, according to the state Department of Justice. In 1992, 1,400 women were killed by their husbands or boyfriends, while fewer than 400 men were killed by their wives, said Richard J. Gelles, director of the Family Violence Research Program at the University of Rhode Island. "Basically, the victims are women and ownership of the problem is men," Gelles said.

A court commissioner ordered Friday that the guardianship case involving the children of O.J. Simpson and Nicole Brown Simpson remain sealed, saying the measure is needed to protect the privacy of the two youngsters. The ruling extends to any posting of upcoming court hearings, which could bring a flood of media attention to the courthouse and harm the privacy rights of the two young Simpson children, Sydney and Justin, Orange County Commissioner Thomas H. Schulte said.
