Table of contents What's This?
A collection of files documenting the O. J. Simpson murder trial ( The People of the State of California v. Orenthal James Simpson) as compiled by two journalists covering the trial at NBC News in Burbank: reporter John Gibson and producer Kathy Riggins. Gibson and Riggins were part of the NBC team in charge of producing hourly reports on the original O. J. Simpson trial for NBC affiliate stations around the country. The team was tasked with producing news packages several times an hour from 9am to 6pm with live shots for stations across the country over the 18 months of pretrial and trial. The collection includes trial transcripts, motions, decisions, orders, and scripts and notes that were collected and filed over the course of the trial.
