The People V O J Simpson

The People V  O J  Simpson

Now a major BBC TV series. The definitive account of the O.J. Simpson trial, The People v. O.J. Simpson is a prodigious feat of reporting that could only have been written by the foremost legal journalist of our time. Writing less than a year after the infamous verdict, Jeffrey Toobin explores the secret dealings and manoeuvring on both sides of the case, and how a combination of the prosecution’s over-confidence, the defence’s shrewdness, and the Los Angeles Police Department’s incendiary history with the city’s African-American community, gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt. Rich in character, as propulsive as a legal thriller, this enduring narrative continues to shock and fascinate with its candid depiction of the human drama that upended the world. The People v. O.J. Simpson tells the whole story, from the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman to the ruthless gamesmanship behind the scenes of the trial of the century.

Summary of the Run of His Life

Warning This is an independent addition to The Run of His Life, meant to enhance your experience of the original book. If you have not yet bought the original copy, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial summary from aBookaDay. This review of The Run of His Life: The People V. O.J. Simpson, by Jeffery Toobin provides a chapter by chapter detailed summary followed by an analysis and critique of the strengths and weaknesses of the book. The main theme explored in the book is how the defense team for the trial of the People vs. O.J. Simpson earned the acquittal of Simpson for the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. The author details each step of the trial, highlighting the clever tactics, questions of racism and corruption in the LAPD, and outright bold strategy that Simpson's defense used throughout. Having been a journalist directly involved in the trial from 1994-95, the author uses his own experience and research, as well as data gathered from the trial evidence and more than 200 interviews to compile this book. Through this extensive research, the author makes the case that Simpson was undoubtedly guilty of the murders and due to the damning witness testimony and stacks of staggering physical evidence, the prosecution team should have had an easy win. However, the perfect storm of chaos that surrounded the trial-including the cast of characters involved and the defense's strategy to play the race card at a time of racial tension in Los Angeles-led to a much more controversial and questionable verdict. The central thesis of the work is that while O.J. Simpson was very likely guilty of the murder of his ex-wife, he largely benefited from his celebrity status and role as a successful black man in America and was acquitted for his crime. This trial played heavily upon the role of race relations in the early 90's and ultimately included issues of bias, domestic-violence, police brutality and corruption, and media obsession. Jeffery Toobin graduated from Harvard Law School and wrote for New York magazine at the time of the O.J. Simpson trials. He currently writes for The New Yorker and is a senior legal analyst at CNN. He had written several best-selling nonfiction novels, such as The Nine, Too Close to Call, and A Vast Conspiracy. He currently lives and works in New York. in life with confidence instead of fear, emerging victorious and satisfied. Available on PC, Mac, iphone, android, tablet or Kindle device.

Language and Power in Court

Sociolinguists and lawyers will find insight and relevance in this account of the language of the courtroom, as exemplified in the criminal trial of O.J. Simpson. The trial is examined as the site of linguistic power and persuasion, focusing on the role of language in (re)presenting and (re)constructing the crime. In addition to the trial transcripts, the book draws on Simpson's post-arrest interview, media reports and post-trial interviews with jurors. The result is a unique multi-dimensional insight into the 'Trial of the Century' from a linguistic and discursive perspective.

Anatomy of a Trial

The People vs. O. J. Simpson ranks indisputably as the trial of the century. It featured a double murder, a celebrity defendant, a perjuring witness, and a glove that didn’t fit. The trial became a media circus of outrageous proportions that led the judge to sequester the jury, eject disruptive reporters, and fine the lawyers thousands of dollars. Now an insider at The People vs. O. J. Simpson reveals the untold story of the most widely followed trial in American history and the indelible impact it has had on the judiciary, the media, and the public. As the Los Angeles Superior Court’s media liaison, Jerrianne Hayslett had unprecedented access to the trial—and met with Judge Lance Ito daily—as she attempted, sometimes unsuccessfully, to mediate between the court and members of the media and to balance their interests. In Anatomy of a Trial, she takes readers behind the scenes to shed new light on people and proceedings and to show how the media and the trial participants changed the court-media landscape to the detriment of the public’s understanding of the judicial system. For those who think they’ve already read all there is to know about the Simpson trial, this book is an eye-opener. Hayslett kept a detailed journal during the proceedings in which she recorded anecdotes and commentary. She also shares previously undisclosed information to expose some of the myths and stereotypes perpetuated by the trial, while affirming other stories that emerged during that time. By examining this trial after more than a decade, she shows how it has produced a bunker mentality in the judicial system, shaping media and public access to courts with lasting impact on such factors as cameras in the courtroom, jury selection, admonishments from the bench, and fair-trial/free-press tensions. The first account of the trial written with Judge Ito’s cooperation, Anatomy of a Trial is a page-turning narrative and features photographs that capture both the drama of the courtroom and the excesses of the media. It also includes perspectives of legal and journalism authorities and offers a blueprint for how the courts and media can better meet their responsibilities to the public. Even today, judges, lawyers, and journalists across the country say the Simpson trial changed everything. This book finally tells us why.

When Law and Medicine Meet  A Cultural View

What happens when two systems, law and medicine, are joined in the arena of the court? This work deals with the structure and the premises of two diverse discourse models; the approach is anthropological. Several chapters are preponderantly based on legal research, addressing cases requiring testimony by expert witnesses on recent technologies used in the laboratories of medical scientists. Descriptions of other societies and cultures consider the identical problems of rights, privileges, and duties, and provide perspectives to cultural self-knowledge. This volume can be used as a text for courses taught in medical schools and law schools. It will be of particular interest to students taking courses in health science, public health, medical anthropology, forensic anthropology, psychology, sociology, public justice, behavioral sciences, forensic psychiatry, legal anthropology, social welfare, as well as courses on research models.
