Robert Kardashian, a close friend of Simpson, renewed his lapsed law license to participate in the trial. Simpson stayed at his home after the killings were discovered and Kardashian read to the public a rambling message from Simpson as he was fleeing from police in a white Ford Bronco. Kardashian died at the age of 59 in 2003 from esophageal cancer. His ex-wife, Kris, and his children, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob, became famous after his death with their reality show, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."

Fred Goldman, Ron Goldman's father, relentlessly pursued O.J. Simpson through civil courts for more than a decade. Goldman's family seized Simpson's Heisman Trophy, the rights to his movies, a book he wrote about the killings and other items to satisfy part of a $33.5 million judgment by a civil court jury that held Simpson liable for the killings. Goldman, a 73-year-old former architect, lives with his wife, Patti, in Arizona, where he works in retail sales. "Can't afford to retire," says Goldman, who adds he has put what share of the judgment he's recovered into the Ron Goldman Foundation for Justice that he founded with his wife and daughter.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- As if trying to escape a recurring nightmare, most of the survivors of O.J. Simpson's "Trial of the Century" refuse to talk about it on the 20th anniversary of the tragedy. And that includes Simpson who sent word from prison that he has nothing to say. Two members of the famous defense "dream team" are dead and only one, F. Lee Bailey, continues a campaign to prove to the public that the acquitted defendant truly was not guilty of the murders of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman.
