LAS VEGAS -- The return of O.J. Simpson to a Las Vegas courtroom Monday will remind Americans of a tragedy that became a national obsession and in the process changed the country's attitude toward the justice system, the media and celebrity.

His 1995 trial is the stuff of legends, the precipitous fall of a Hall of Fame football player who, although acquitted of killing his ex-wife and her friend, was never absolved in the public mind. Less is remembered about the 2008 Las Vegas trial that sent Simpson to prison for a bizarre hotel room robbery.

Monday he goes to court at 9 a.m. to seek a new trial in that case. It is a last-ditch effort that will decide the ex-football star's future. But Simpson's past -- as always -- will be the backdrop.

News 3 will have complete coverage of Simpson's court hearing starting Monday morning.
