If it doesn't fit, you must acquit
The most famous defense attorney of our time has passed away.
Johnnie L. Cochran Jr., who became a legal superstar after helping clear former football star O.J. Simpson during a sensational murder trial in which he uttered the famous quote "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit," died Tuesday. He was 67.
Cochran died of a brain disorder in Los Angeles, said law partner Randy McMurray.
