Attorney Johnnie Cochran Dies
Johnnie Cochran, the attorney who gained fame as O.J. Simpson's defense lawyer in 1995, has died at age 67. Cochran's family says he had a brain tumor.
Michele Norris talks about Cochran's life and career with Connie Rice, a Los Angeles civil rights attorney who is co-founder and co-director of the Advancement Project. Rice says Cochran was very fair as a prosecutor and never left behind his smaller, unknown clients.
