    Famed Attorney Johnnie Cochran Dead at 67

    Discussion started by ClueTwo - Mar 30, 2005

    (Los Angeles) -- He'll be remembered for his wardrobe, winning, and the phrase to a jury: "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit." Famed attorney Johnnie Cochran has died at the age of 67.

    His family says Cochran died at his home in Los aAgeles of a brain tumor. A statement from his family says "Cochran's career will be marked by "celebrity" cases but that they are "most proud of the work he did on behalf of those in the community."

    For Cochran, Simpson's acquittal was the crowning achievement in a career notable for victories, often in cases with racial themes. He was a black man known for championing the causes of black defendants.

    Over the years, Cochran represented football great Jim Brown on rape and assault charges, Actor Todd Bridges on attempted murder charges, Rapper Tupac Shakur on a weapons charge and Rapper Snoop Dogg on a murder charge.

    He also represented former black panther Elmer "Geronimo" Pratt, who spent 27 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit.

    I bet a bajillion, gazillion dollars that no matter how much you say you didn't like the man, if you had the cash to afford him you would have changed your mind in a heart beat...

    Unless ,of course, if you're a district attorney. If that was the case get the fuck out of here..

    ^^ agree with you 100%. honestly didn't know he was ill either, deffinatly has to suck knowing you're going to die, and having the money to do something about it, but just not being able to.
