1997: A civil jury in California finds O.J. Simpson liable in the death of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. It ordered Simpson to pay $8.5 million in compensatory damages to the Goldman family. Two days later the jury would start deliberating punitive damages, ultimately awarding the families of Goldman and Brown Simpson a total of $25 million.
