OJ’s Defense Lawyer Alan Dershowitz Questions ‘People v OJ Simpson’ Accuracy (Video)

“Where did they get that information?” attorney asks of hit FX series

Alan Dershowitz, who was one of O.J. Simpson’s defense attorneys during the Trial of the Century, has come out against FX’s series “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.”

Dershowitz appeared on a segment for the Jewish Broadcasting Service Wednesday with the network’s President Mark S. Golub to question how the show’s creators were able to ascertain sensitive evidence from the trial.

“Where did they get information about a private conversation between O.J. Simpson, who’s now in prison, and Johnnie Cochran, who’s dead?” the former member of the Dream Team asked. “They have intimate conversations between the two of them, how do they know about that?”

Dershowitz is played by Evan Handler on the FX show, and this isn’t the first time he’s spoken out against the hit drama.

He made the same claims of inaccuracy and questioned the showrunners’ sources in February, during an interview with the New York Daily News.

“The People v. O.J. Simpson” airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
