Smithsonian May Sink to OJ Low

3/1/2010 10:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The suit famed killer OJ Simpson wore when he was acquitted of murder may be going to the Smithsonian Institution.

After a court hearing today, and after years of squabbling, lawyers for Simpson and Fred Goldman agreed to donate the "acquittal suit."

The judge called Simpson from prison, where he's serving time for armed robbery and kidnapping, to get his approval. Simpson's lawyer said his client agreed, provided that no one make money off the threads.

David Cook, attorney for Goldman, says, "The donation to the Smithsonian of the acquittal suit puts front and center the shock to America when justice escaped the Los Angeles courthouse. The memory of Ron Goldman shall be on permanent display."

Cook added, "If the suit is the emblematic of justice gone berserk, justice is served."

No word if the Smithsonian will accept the suit.

The Smithsonian won't accept it.

Oh My GOD! This is disgusting. This country is really a wreck if this is allowed to happen. He got away with murder and now his suit may go into the Smithsonian??? I will never visit there now. Poor Nicole. Simpson is still calling the shots and still becoming famous. There are much better ways to honor Ron's and NICOLE's (YES SHE WAS THERE TOO MR> GOLDMAN) memory. I PRAY this is a sick joke. Smithsonian-you need to make this decision very carefully.

Mr Cook,

Ron Goldman wasn't the ONLY person who was murdered. Show some tact, and recognize Nicole.

They should pair it up with a nice pair of gloves, don't you think? I don't understand what the draw is on this - why would the Smithsonian think people would care to see the suit - no one wants to see the man who wore it (except maybe 6 feet under the ground). Murderer.
