((With a California rain coming down hard, the day got off to a rough start for plaintiff Fred Goldman.
But once inside the shelter of the courtroom, his lawyer tore apart some of the most potent portions of OJ Simpson's defense case. The biggest blow came when criminalist Dennis Fung recanted one of the biggest successes in the defense case thus far - that the crime scene glove in this photo is not the same glove Simpson tried on at the criminal trial, suggesting police tampered with the evidence. But as a rebuttal witness, Fung said he was mistaken.
And before Fung, a former FBI photo expert testified that although it may appear that the glove in the picture has a hole in the fourth finger, a hole that isn't on the glove Simpson tried on in court, it's only an optical illusion - it's not a hole at all, only a piece of debris.
