Hank Goldberg[edit]

I'm going on memory, but I do not recall Hank Goldberg (the ESPN reporter/radio host) being a key figure for the prosecution. Is there, perhaps, a different Hank Goldberg? The article mentions nothing about his involvement in either the O.J. Simpson murder case or any kind of prior legal career. —Twigboy 14:28, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

yes, there is an attorney named Hank Goldberg who isn't the ESPN reporter/radio host. He wrote a book called The Prosecution Responds ISBN-13: 978-1559723619 published in 1996; he reread all of the court documents in the course of writing the book so it is more of a legal tome than a personal memoir.LynnMaudlin (talk) 23:12, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

Geraldo Rivera?[edit]

What is Geraldo doing on this template as a "key figure"? --Fightingirish 01:14, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Ditto for Greta van Susteran, Jeffrey Toobin, and other reporters. Sure, they may have reported on the trial, but they are not "key figures" by any stretch of the imagination. The trial would have gone on just fine without them. I'm deleting them from the template.--Hnsampat 12:12, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Other elements[edit]

there is no need to link to articles on topics that are only coincidentally involved in the case. Articles like Gloves are not appropriate, as they don't mention the case at all. I'm removing them. -Verdatum (talk) 22:07, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
