It's been 20 years since the verdict, but the nation is still captivated by the O.J. Simpson trial thanks to FX's hit series. Find out what happened to Marcia Clark, Mark Fuhrman, Robert Shapiro and more—and see how some of them feel about the show...
Though he was acquitted in 1995, Simpson, now 68, was found guilty in civil court, and was ordered to pay the Goldman and Brown families $33.5 million in damages.
In 2007, Simpson was arrested in Las Vegas on charges of armed robbery and kidnapping, and was found guilty in 2008. He was sentenced to 33 years in jail, and is up for parole in 2017.
The star defense attorney wrote two books after the trial, 1996's Journey to Justice (1996) and 2002's A Lawyer's Life, and continued to practice law, going on to represent Sean Combs in 2001 on stolen weapons charges as well as bribery, winning an acquittal. Cochran died from a brain tumor in 2005.
The prosecutor took a leave from the District Attorney's office after the trial, before officially resigning in 1997, going on to write a book about her experience, Without a Doubt. She's since written four novels. She also made a guest appearance on Pretty Little Liars.
Clark has been an avid supporter of the FX series, calling it "amazing" during an appearance on The View. She even met up with her on-screen counterpart Sarah Paulson, telling Larry King, "It was the most fun. We drank tequila all night. We shut the place down. We never stopped laughing."
After the Simpson verdict, Darden left the DA's office in 1995 and went on to teach law at L.A.'s Southwestern University School of Law. He founded his own firm, Darden & Associates, in 1999. He wrote a book about the trial, In Contempt, but refused to meet or speak with Sterling K. Brown for the series, with Brown telling us, "I reached out to him a couple of times beforehand and got nothing. The most interaction I've had is with his daughter on Twitter."
And Darden spoke out against the show in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, saying, "I lived it, you know, I was there. This is really someone else's creation, and I am not part of that creation. They did not bother to consult me or ask me about it. I don't think I have any responsibility in terms of watching."
Simpson's lead counsel, Shapiro, 73, is still practicing law, focusing more on civil litigation after the trial of the century. He founded The Brent Shapiro Foundation in honor of his son, who died of a drug overdose.
While Shapiro wrote a book about his experience during the trial, The Search for Justice, A Defense Attorney's Brief on the O.J. Simpson Case and Misconception, he hasn't commented on the series. (John Travolta portrays him.)
The LAPD detective became one of the trial's most controversial figures after he discovered the infamous bloody glove on Simpson's estate and when he was called to testify, the defense called his past use of racial epithets into question. After retiring during the trial, Fuhrman was charged with perjury for lying during his original testimony. He plead on contest and received three years' probation. Fuhrman went on to write a book, Murder in Brentwood, and is currently a forensic and crime scene expert for Fox News.
Fuhrman has come out against the show, saying, "This miniseries will most probably define not the historical record of the murder of two people, but the almost pathological desire to elevate a narcissistic, violent man to victim status just because he was a black athlete."
One of lawyers for the defense, Bailey, 82, no longer practices law. He was disbarred in Massachusetts and Florida for misconduct and was denied a law license in Maine in 2013. He's co-written several books and is a paid speaker.
Following the trial, Kardashian cut ties with Simpson, telling Barbara Walters in 1996, "I have doubts. The blood evidence is the biggest thorn in my side; that causes me the greatest problems. So I struggle with the blood evidence." (He also testified in the civil suit against Simpson.) He passed away in 2003 at the age of 59 after a short with throat cancer.
Though the jury found Simpson not guilty in 1995, Ron Goldman's father and sister won their civil suit against him in 1997, the same year their book, His Name Is Ron: Our Search for Justice, came out.
The Goldmans have come out against the FX show, with Kim telling Steve Harvey that it "just kind of ripped the Band-Aid right back off, poured gallons of salt in it."
Though he found himself publicly mocked during the trial for allowing TV cameras into the courtroom, Judge Ito was the only major player in the trial to not write a book about the experience and retired in 2015. He has not spoken publicly about the trial or the show.
Ito is still married to Peggy York, the former LAPD captain who was brought into the trial unexpectedly when Mark Fuhrman made disparaging comments about her on the infamous tapes, almost leading to a mistrial.
Kaelin became America's most famous house guest after he was Simpson's alibi witness, thanks to the late-night burger run on the night of the murders. He went on to become a TV and radio host, and appeared on several reality and game shows.
During an appearance on Oprah: Where Are They Now?, Kaelin called Billy Magnussen's portryal of him "incorrect," saying, "As far as the acting goes, I think it's terrific. Billy Magnussen, the actor, is [a] terrific actor. His choice of how he plays me is incorrect...I really wish I had a chance to meet him beforehand, but it was his choice not to meet."
He's currently living in his own house.
The defense attorney, who was played by Evan Handler and was the case's appellate adviser, has written several books and retired from teaching at Harvard Law in 2013. He told The New York Daily News that the show was "totally inaccurate."
Portrayed by Jordana Brewster on the show, Nicole Brown's sister went on to help found The Nicole Brown Foundation, which helps victims of domestic abuse.
Robert Kardashian's ex-wife and Nicole Brown's close friend has gone on, obviously, to found a reality TV empire, serving as an executive producer on E!'s Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and manages her children's careers.
Jenner ended up having an unexpected run-in with Selma Blair, who portrays her on the series, and opened up about her friendship with the late Nicole. "She just told me really intimate sweet things about their friendship," Blair told us of their meeting, "and the guacamole that [Nicole] made and just things to make it really human to me. Because I watched the case when it happened and it was just nice to have little personal things to put in my back pocket. And to realize that Kris loved her."
Following the trial and her first book, Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted, Faye Resnick penned Shattered: In the Eye of the Storm about her experience during the trial and her views on the two legal teams. She posed for Playboy in 1997 and was quick to point out on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that she did not "spread." Faye recurs on the Bravo reality series as a friend of Kyle Richards and married Everett Jack Jr. in 2015.
Scheck, who served on Simpson's defense team and served to discredit the prosecution's DNA evidence, founded The Innocence Project, which sets on to exonerate wrongly convicted people and is a Professor of Law at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. He played himself on an episode of The Good Wife, and has co-written two books.
