Christopher Darden is a prominent figure in the legal world, globally known for his involvement in the 1995 O.J. Simpson murder trial. Now, he is running for a seat on the Los Angeles County Superior Court.
Darden's role in the Simpson trial, famously dubbed the “Trial of the Century,” is remembered for his request of Simpson to try on the gloves used in the alleged murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. When they did not fit, Johnnie Cochran famously declared "If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit".
Darden has worked as an attorney in Los Angeles for 40 years, including positions at the LA County District Attorney’s Office, a criminal defense attorney in private practice, and a law professor. He even provided legal analysis for CNBC, NBC, Court TV, and CNN.
On November 13, Darden received an endorsement from retired judge, Lance Ito, who presided over the Simpson case. Ito and Darden are also familiar with each other from when both worked in the Hardcore Gang Unit. Darden said he was honored to receive Ito’s support, stressing that Ito “conducts himself with the utmost professionalism and sets the standard for fairness on the bench.”
In addition to Ito’s endorsement, Darden also lists endorsements on his campaign website from several Judges. On his website, Darden highlights his extensive legal experience, proclaiming that it makes him an “exceptional and uniquely qualified candidate for the bench”.
It is evident that Darden is leveraging his association with the Simpson murder trial to further his campaign for a seat on the Superior Court. With his impressive legal experience, Darden looks to be on the path to success in the upcoming election on March 5.
