Arguably the most famous sports star gone bad, retired American football legend and actor O.J. Simpson was charged with the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and waiter Ron Goldman. Sensationally ‘Juice’ was acquitted after a high-profile trial that lasted eight months. But the story didn’t end there as both the families of the victims sued Simpson for damages totalling $40m in a civil trial. A jury unanimously found there was enough evidence to hold him liable for damages in the wrongful death of Ron Goldman and the battery of Nicole.
