    Re: Johnnie Cochran Dead

    Famed attorney Johnnie Cochran died Tuesday in California following an extended illness, a partner in his law firm said. He was 67.

    Cochran, the great-grandson of a slave, grew up in a wealthy family in Los Angeles. He earned his law degree from Loyola Marymount University after getting a bachelor's degree from the University of California.

    He became famous in the 1970s for his work on controversial, headline-grabbing cases in Los Angeles, taking on as a client a Black Panther accused of murder and a number of police-brutality cases.

    His client list included pop singer Michael Jackson, for whom he arranged an out-of-court settlement with a boy who had accused the singer of molestation, and O. J. Simpson, Cochran argued had been framed by a racist police officer.

    Funeral arrangements will be released later

    While he's probably best remembered for his defense of O.J. Simpson, I recall Cochrane for his apperance on the final episode of "Seinfeld." Referring to Teri Hatcher, Cochrane announced that "they" were "real and they are spectacular."

    "Ladies and Gentlemen of the supposed jury, this is Chewbacca. Chewbacca is a wookie from the planet Kashyyyk. But Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now think about that; that does not make sense. Why would a wookie, an 8 foot tall wookie, want to live on Endor with a bunch of two foot tall ewoks? That does not make sense! But more importantly, you have to ask yourself, ‘what does that have to do with this case?' Nothing. Ladies and Gentlemen, it has nothing to do with this case. IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE!"

    RIP Johnny

    assuming you're serious, that wasn't Johnny.
