In 1995, all of America was focused on the events taking place in an overcrowded courtroom in California. On trial was O.J. Simpson, known for his quick moves on the football field and his burgeoning television career. He stood accused of murdering his ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman in a fit of jealous rage. A&E relives the trial of the century in American Justice: Why O.J. Simpson Won. Despite leading police on a slow-speed pursuit in which he repeatedly threatened suicide, Simpson retained much public sympathy. Defenders and accusers fell along racial lines as even international news programs focused on this case. A&E asks why this trial captured so much attention and why the outcome was so important. An ill-fitting glove, a camera-ready housemate, and a clumsy policeman all star in this year-long procedure. When the verdict was announced, it was estimated that 95 percent of television viewers were tuned in. Through interviews with key figures and replay of the events, A&E unravels Simpson's close call. ~ Sarah Ing, Rovi
