Fortune is at stake as trial in killings starts More evidence will be part of civil case against Simpson By LINDA DEUTSCH The Associated Press SANTA MONICA, Calif. — His fortune — not his freedom — at stake this time, the twice-told tale of O.J. Simpson opened Wednesday with an attorney saying the lawsuit represents the "last fight for justice" for the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. In an opening statement at Simpson's civil trial, attorney Daniel Petrocelli branded him the man who confronted Nicole Simpson and Goldman on June 12,1994, and stabbed them to death. "They were defenseless against a man — large, powerful, strong, armed with a 6-inch knife, and in a total state of rage," Petrocelli said. Goldman "died with his eyes open," Petrocelli said. "In the last few, furious moments of his life, he saw the person who killed his friend Nicole. The last person (he) saw through his open eyes was the man who ended his young life, the man who now sits in the courtroom, the defendant." Simpson seemed to pay close attention, conferring with his lawyers and occasionally shaking his head in disagreement with Petrocelli, who represents Goldman's father, Fred. The Brown and Goldman families are suing the former football star for unspecified monetary damages for wrongful death in the slayings. The civil trial opened a little SIMPSON over a year after a jury in criminal court acquitted him of murder. Petrocelli, who called the case "Fred Goldman's last fight for justice," portrayed Ronald Goldman as a hero who refused to back away from the murderer. Fred Goldman began to cry when Petrocelli described his son's last moments, returning a pair of eyeglasses to Nicole Simpson's home. Petrocelli generally relied on the timeline drawn by prosecutors at the murder trial but estimated that the killings happened later in the evening. As in the first trial, Petrocelli said the most important evidence would be blood. He promised jurors to prove through DNA that Simpson's blood and the blood of the victims clearly paint him as the killer. Petrocelli outlined some of the new evidence the jurors can expect, including testimony from Simpson, who must take the stand this time. He promised: • The Bronco chase and Simpson's "suicide letter," used to imply consciousness of guilt. • A 1993 photo of Simpson wearing Bruno Magli shoes, tied to bloody prints at the crime scene. • Carpet fibers that match Simpson's Bronco interior, with scientific evidence linking them to Goldman's shirt, a cap at the crime scene and a glove found at Simpson's home. The fibers weren't allowed as evidence at the criminal trial. • A key found in a duffel bag in the Bronco after the chase purportedly opens the back gate at Nicole Brown Simpson's condominium and will be used to show that Simpson could have easily gained access to the crime scene. • A forensic expert's analysis of cuts on Simpson's hand. The plaintiffs contend the gouges were caused by the victims' fingernails. ON THE RECORD Hospital report Salina Regional Health Center PENN ADMISSIONS — None.
