Kardashian Motion in the (Louis Vuitton) Bag?

 Kardashian’s role,

The subject of a motion.

What he knows is secret.


This is so obscure, I almost couldn’t recall what it’s about. I thought it might have to do with Robert Kardashian urging Simpson to surrender to police after the murders of Simpson’s ex-wife, Nicole Brown, and Brown’s acquaintance, Ronald Goldman.

Kardashian, being a lawyer and Simpson confidante, had Simpson staying at his home for several days after the murders. Instead of surrendering as Kardashian had arranged, though,  Simpson left Kardashian flat-footed and took off on what became the infamous slow-speed Bronco chase. A stood-up Kardashian then read Simpson’s “suicide note” to the news media.

Most likely, though, this haiku was related to something else that became infamous; Simpson’s Louis Vuitton garment bag.

Kardashian ended up with the garment bag, which Simpson assistant Cathy Randa gave him the day after the murders. Simpson had apparently brought it back with him from Chicago, where he flown to a short time after the murders were committed.

Although Kardashian stipulated in a court document that he never opened the bag or knew what was in it, speculation abounded, particularly among the Goldman family, that it had contained the knife used as a murder weapon. When the bag became potential prosecution evidence, however, it was empty. As Simpson’s lawyer, Kardashian couldn’t be compelled to testify in court because of confidentiality allowed by attorney-client privilege.

In an ABC interview a year after the not-guilty verdict in Simpson’s murder trial, Kardashian is quoted as saying this about the question of Simpson’s innocence:

“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.”

My own personal belief is that Kardashian had more than doubts. Every time I see Kardashian’s reaction and the expression on his face when Simpson trial Judge Lance Ito’s judicial assistant Deirdre Robertson reads the jury verdict, I’m convinced he either thought or knew that Simpson was guilty and that he and his defense team had pulled off the greatest coup.
