Apparently no Simpson matters were heard in court on Aug. 4, 1994, or on the next few subsequent days, since I wrote no haiku on those days. Considering that the case was still in the pretrial phase and, in fact, jury selection was still two months off, it’s surprising now, looking back, that there were so many matters that required nearly daily hearings during the weeks leading up to trial.
Something that did happen, albeit not in court and a couple of days before Aug. 4, was the 44th birthday of the trial judge, Lance Ito. That means he turned 64 a couple of days ago. Happy belated birthday, Judge Ito.
