Cochran Jr., who successfully defended O.J. Simpson against murder charges, has been sued for discrimination. Attorney Shawn Chapman Holley claimed in her lawsuit filed last week in Los Angeles County Superior Court that the firm’s leaders discriminated against her because she is black. After Cochran’s death in 2005, the firm’s leadership was turned over to white men who discriminated against black lawyers and black clients, and who eventually fired her, the lawsuit said. “In deference to the memory of Johnnie Cochran and in deference to his family, I do not intend to engage in the public airing of our disagreements,” Holley said in a statement through her lawyer. “The lawsuit speaks for itself, and this matter will be litigated in the courts.” A call to the Cochran firm in Los Angeles was not immediately returned. Randy H. McMurray, a partner in the firm, told a newspaper the allegations were not true and that Holley was not fired.
