Testimony of Dr. Robert Huizenga
JULY 14, 1995 9:20 A.M.

 Robert Huizenga, called as a witness by the Defendant, was sworn and testified as follows:


 MR. SHAPIRO: You are a physician and surgeon licensed to practice in the state of California?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, I am. I practice internal medicine.
 MR. SHAPIRO: And when did you see Mr. OJ Simpson first as a patient?

 DR. HUIZENGA: I saw him first noon at June 15, 1994.

 MR. SHAPIRO: And was that at someone's suggestion other than Mr. Simpson's?

 DR. HUIZENGA: It was at your suggestion.

 MR. SHAPIRO: Would you tell the ladies and gentlemen of the jury what type of examination you conducted of OJ Simpson on the 15th, Wednesday.

 DR. HUIZENGA: Well, when he came I did a very thorough history. Subsequently, a physical examination.

 MR. SHAPIRO: Did you discover during the course of that history any preexisting medical conditions or injuries?

DR. HUIZENGA: Well, initially, and probably the most troubling to me as an internist, he gave an approximately one-month history of drenching night sweats so severe that he would have to get out of bed, towel himself off and go back and sleep in the dry portion of the bed.

DR. HUIZENGA: So the drenching night sweats are a sign in medicine occasionally of a significant disease. And in association with that he gave me a very strong personal family history of cancer, and in fact he himself had had carcinoid cancer of the rectum, a cancer that can be quite benign or can have more sinister implications. Correlating those symptoms with his physical exam, he had an enlarged lymph node in his right axilla, which is under the right armpit, in addition to clubbing of his fingernails, which is something that can be an inherited condition or it can be also consistent with a lung process, and those things were noted and worrisome for anything from an infection to a cancer to some other sort of autoimmune process.

MR. SHAPIRO: Did you make any recommendations as a result of your initial examination and subsequent follow-up examination?

DR. HUIZENGA: The recommendation was that we biopsy that lymph node.

DR. HUIZENGA: The result of the biopsy was revealing abnormally enlarged lymph nodes, a collection of lymph nodes, and the pathology was consistent with a benign reactive lymphoid hyperplasia which may be associated with a number of diseases. Specifically we were very worried about Hodgkin's disease and we felt that lymph node was consistent with rheumatoid arthritis.

MR. SHAPIRO: Did you discover, through your history and subsequent examination, any other surgeries that Mr. Simpson had had prior to him coming to see you?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, I did.  Okay. In my initial history with Mr. Simpson he kind of presented with that whole array of the typical post-NFL injury syndromes. He had, of course, a number of head concussions when he was playing with the buffalo team. Specifically, he had initially a surgery on his left wrist all the way back to 1965 which significantly limited the motion in his left wrist and caused him continuing pain. He had multiple fractures, which is pretty common in football, and had visibly enlarged knuckles which also can be associated with either fractures or osteoarthritis or other rheumatologic arthritic conditions. He had a significant knee complaints. And he had subsequently on his left knee had four surgeries.

MR. SHAPIRO: Let me just see if we can put this in perspective. The first thing you told the jury was that he had a typical post-NFL syndrome. Break that down and explain what you are trying to convey to the jury.

DR. HUIZENGA: Well, when I first saw him in the office, which as I said was noon, we squeezed him in during the lunch hour, he basically was visibly limping as he came down the hall. You know, that is the first thing that strikes me. And he really was not walking properly.

MR. SHAPIRO: What is your opinion as to the condition of his knee based on your examination and the medical histories that you reviewed?

 DR. HUIZENGA: He had severe wear and tear arthritis of the left knee and was a strong candidate in the relatively near future for a total knee replacement.

 MR. SHAPIRO: In your opinion how would that affect his mobility on the day you saw him?

 DR. HUIZENGA: On the day I saw him he had significantly limited mobility because of the knee and actually another ankle problem that we haven't discussed, and I think would be significantly limited in terms of fast walking, certainly in terms of slow jogging, it would be very difficult, if not impossible, that day.

 MR. SHAPIRO: Now, let's go above the waist. Did you do any examination between--let's talk about the wrist.

 DR. HUIZENGA: The left wrist. He sustained an injury, the exact nature of which I'm not exactly clear, in 1965, but needed surgery of this area. When I did an exam, usually the wrist should come up something like ninety degrees and it should kind of flap down also at about ninety degrees, so you estimate these things in the office. And his left wrist really was only able to come up about thirty or forty degrees. This is not an exact science, but you know, you kind of estimate 45 degrees, and he did not seem to break that plane. And when you forcibly tried to move it up, you know, there was no give and pain.

 MR. SHAPIRO: Was there any other injuries that you observed in the arm areas?

 DR. HUIZENGA: He had damage to his elbows such that when he would try to fully extend--again, the elbow should extend 180 degrees, to be perfectly straight, and he had what we call a flexion contracture. I

MR. SHAPIRO: Any other observations of the upper torso?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Umm, he had multiple scars, keloids over parts of his upper body and the back, and of course the fingers and the elbows and forearms and hands. He was somewhat bowlegged, you know, in addition to the limp we described, and I think those were the--in addition to the finger things that we talked about, the large--enlargements, those were the major findings.

 MR. SHAPIRO: Did you notice any inflammation in the hand area?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, I did. He had multiple areas that were enlarged, these bony enlargements on his joints.

 MR. SHAPIRO: Which hand were you referring to?

 DR. HUIZENGA: This is the right hand.

 MR. SHAPIRO: Would you describe slowly to the jury your findings on Mr. Simpson's right hand.

 DR. HUIZENGA: His right-hand had multiple joint enlargements. Basically bony overgrowths located on the proximal joint of his thumb, this proximal phalangeal joint on his right index finger, the proximal joint on his third right finger, both the distal interphalangeal joint and the proximal interphalangeal joint on his fourth ring finger, and again distal interphalangeal joint and proximal interphalangeal joint swelling and hypertrophy on the fifth right finger.

 MR. SHAPIRO: How about the left hand. Would you go through the same demonstration.

 DR. HUIZENGA: Those joints were swollen with bony overgrowths signifying some type of trauma or old fractures or inflammatory or osteoarthritic disease.

 MR. SHAPIRO: When you saw him on the 15th did you have any opinion as to how these conditions would affect his mobility?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Well, he was visibly limping to my eye, and my initial impression was that it was mainly the osteoarthritis or the wear and tear disease. But I think that really he is limited, specifically lower extremities, by his arthritis, and he certainly was limited to a way on the 15th of June where he would have a very difficult time moving quickly in his lower extremities.

 MR. SHAPIRO: This is not a condition, in your opinion, that came on within two days, is it?

 DR. HUIZENGA: No, I don't believe that is--I think that these are long-lived symptoms.
 MR. SHAPIRO: Is that the way Mr. Simpson appeared on the 15th in your office?

DR. HUIZENGA:  Yes.  Initially I was looking over every part of his head, including his scalp, for any evidence of hematomas, which is a--after you get some direct trauma, a little bleeding under the skin, think bump, you know, you know it as a goose egg. We were looking very carefully for scratch marks. I was looking for any area of a chipped tooth and ran my fingers around all of his teeth in his mouth. We were looking for any evidence that anything had kind of pulled on his ears and looked very carefully behind his ears and examined his skin. In addition, I did a very careful physical exam of his nose. I do that routinely, looking for any evidence of the use of cocaine and his nasal passages were entirely normal. Looked very carefully on his neck for any evidence of pulling or tugging or any bruise. Basically a bruise is some evidence of direct contusion without laceration, and saw none. There was no purpura which is a black and blue type of mark if you break a blood vessel under the skin. There was no evidence of change in skin color other than some these of these old darkly pigmented evidences of old abrasions and the multiple cuts you get as a football player.

 MR. SHAPIRO: Specifically did you find any evidence of bruising, scratches, cuts or abrasions?

 DR. HUIZENGA: No, I did not.
 MR. SHAPIRO: Did you examine the right hand for any cuts or abrasions?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, I did.   There is a jagged laceration that extends from the distal interphalangeal joint of the fourth left finger and it comes in almost a snake-like fashion and just it--it slices coming down in this way, (Indicating), and then it almost seems to change in the plane and then it is a deeper cut.

 MR. SHAPIRO: Thank you. Did you observe this injury on Mr. Simpson on the 15th, as well as the 17th?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, I did.

 MR. SHAPIRO: Would you describe that to the jury.

 DR. HUIZENGA: Okay. Okay. On his third finger he had a lesion that had the appearance of a fishhook and basically from the top it came down and kind of fished in a direction toward his fourth index finger.

MR. SHAPIRO: Do you have any opinion as to--let's leave that up for a second--as to how the injury above the knuckle was caused?

DR. HUIZENGA: I believe it was by some sort of a sharp object.

 MR. SHAPIRO: Not a knife?

 DR. HUIZENGA: A knife is a possibility, but to me the edges looked a little bit ragged, but that was a possibility, but it seemed to me to be more consistent with glass, but certainly a sharp object can do that.

 MR. SHAPIRO: In this wound, do you have an opinion as to what is more reasonable as the cause for that injury?

 DR. HUIZENGA: This wound, as I said, was one of the--appeared to be slightly cleaner than the others, but I think for the constellation of all the wounds it seemed more likely that glass was the cause.

  MR. SHAPIRO: Now, are there certain types of activities somebody with the conditions that Mr. Simpson suffers from be capable of doing?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, there are. Rrelatively sedentary things since his cardio vascular shape wasn't really that good that really don't need, you know, quick movement on that knee and of course over the period of that time his ankle which was bothering him at that time.

 MR. SHAPIRO: Based on your examination of Mr. Simpson on the 15th, did you see any evidence other than the cuts you've described on the left hand of any recent injury that was visible to Mr. Simpson?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Other than those on the 15th, there was no other evidence of any trauma except for several very small little also punctate abrasions that were also on the back of his left palm. But they were--appeared to be basically zigzag areas of maybe several sonometers, which were very superficial, irritation scrapes of some sort.


 MR. KELBERG: And the examination you did on the 15th of June, you say you have no notes of that; is that correct?

 DR. HUIZENGA: I have no notes of that, no.

 MR. KELBERG: But you did in fact prepare a typewritten report; is that correct?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That is correct.

 MR. KELBERG: Doctor, where in your report did you list anything related to Mr. Simpson walking--I hate to use your terminology--like Tarzan's grandfather or having any kind of irregular gait, g-a-I-t?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Uh, that is not in the report. That was subsequently added--

 MR. KELBERG: And, doctor, would you agree that under normal circumstances, a doctor accepts as true the history that is given to him by the patient because of the belief that the patient has an incentive to be honest and candid with the physician in order that the physician can accurately identify any problem and subsequently treat it?

 DR. HUIZENGA: In most cases, that's true.

 MR. KELBERG: Did you consider the possibility in evaluating Mr. Simpson on June 15th that he had a motive to lie regarding his symptoms?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, I did.

 MR. KELBERG: And, doctor, you have no independent basis on which to evaluate whether or not Mr. Simpson was truthful with you, fully candid or whether in fact he was pulling his punches with you, can you?

 DR. HUIZENGA: My report is based on the history that I obtained from him and my observations are the observations that I made of him.
 MR. KELBERG: Now, doctor, on the 17th, if you felt that you had been unable to adequately examine Mr. Simpson on the 15th, you had an opportunity to conduct any additional examinations you required; isn't that correct?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That is correct.

 MR. KELBERG: You didn't find any enlarged lymph node under the left armpit, did you, at that time?

 DR. HUIZENGA: I did not.

 MR. KELBERG: In your training, have you been taught for identifying osteoarthritis, that when you feel around the joint, you expect to find a hardening type of feeling, a bony type of feeling?


 MR. KELBERG: And have you also been taught--rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease; is it not?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, it is.

 MR. KELBERG: Now, doctor, if you're concerned about rheumatoid arthritis, there's something called a grip test that can be done, isn't there?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, there is.

 MR. KELBERG: And that's a very simple test to do; is there not--is it not?

 DR. HUIZENGA: It requires some specialized things because typically you do it with a bulb with a gauge, and we don't have that at our office.

 MR. KELBERG: Well, doctor, can't it be done in fact using a blood pressure device? You do have a blood pressure device, you know, those cuff things that you pump up and then you have a column, a sphygmomanometer I think is the fancy name for it, right?

 DR. HUIZENGA: We do have that.  I could have done that test, but that's not a typical thing to do and would be totally inappropriate for this exam.

 MR. KELBERG: Doctor, where is it recorded the grip strength test result in your report of June 15th?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Well, there are numerous things that are normal that aren't reported. As I said, two hours of our interreaction are certainly not recorded here.

 MR. KELBERG: On June 15th, did Mr. Simpson in your opinion need a knee replacement?

 DR. HUIZENGA: He did not need a knee replacement on the 15th.

 MR. KELBERG: And in fact, you made no effort to have him seen by an orthopedist after June 15th, between the June 15th and June 17th examinations; is that correct?

 DR. HUIZENGA: The orthopedic problems were chronic and something that would bother him over a many year period and were not of an acute nature, certainly not as acute as his other pressing problems.

 MR. KELBERG: And in fact, your opinion was that he had no evidence of an acute arthritic problem, that is a flare-up of any arthritic condition, whether it be osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis on June 15th, 1994; is that correct, doctor?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That is not correct.

 MR. KELBERG: Doctor, was there any finding made by you in--covered in whatever item no. 1 is which dealt with any physical limitation of Mr. Simpson's which in your opinion would have prevented him from murdering two human beings using a single-edged knife on June 12th of 1994?

 DR. HUIZENGA: No, there was not.
MR. KELBERG: And, doctor, you said in response to Mr. Shapiro's question that a knife could give the appearance of a cut that you believe was due to glass; is that correct?

 DR. HUIZENGA: I think there are certain glass cuts that can mimic knife cuts.

 MR. KELBERG: And there are knife cuts that can mimic glass cuts, right?

 DR. HUIZENGA: I think with a knife, if you're--if you're a surgeon, you can mimic a lot of things.



 MR. KELBERG: Now, doctor, in page 2 of your report you say on this night sweats issue: "The patient admits to a month-long history of nocturnal sweats severe enough to awaken him and require him to towel off his entire body, then go to sleep or other non-soaked side of the bed without associated flushing or known fever," right?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That's correct.

 MR. KELBERG: Now, if a person had an influenza and develops a fever, you would expect to see chills initially as the fever escalates, right?

 DR. HUIZENGA: During the evolving phase of the fever as it is going up, you are right, you would typically see chills.

 MR. KELBERG: Did you ever, prior to June 15th, 1994, receive any information as to what temperatures Mr. Simpson had over the period of, let's say, June 10th, through June 15th?

 DR. HUIZENGA: No. There are many causes of sweating, one of which is athletic endeavors or the use of your muscles in a--over a certain threshold.

 MR. KELBERG: And would it be correct, doctor, that the more vigorous the physical activity, the more sweating one might expect?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Given the humidity, given the patient's level of hydration, I think that that is generally a pretty reasonable assumption.
 MR. KELBERG: You were his doctor for the time on June 15th, 1994; isn't that correct?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That is absolutely correct.

 MR. KELBERG: In fact, doctor, from all the records you have obtained, when was the last time Mr. Simpson saw any other doctor?

 DR. HUIZENGA: He last saw you--he never had a, quote-unquote, doctor. He had an orthopedic specialist, Dr. Frank Jobe, who he saw July, I believe, 13, 1993, and at that time Dr. Jobe, an orthopedic specialist, felt that OJ was in an acute rheumatoid arthritis flare and then immediately sent to him Dr. Maltz.

 MR. KELBERG: And so your examination is taking place eleven months since his last examination by any physician, at least to your knowledge; is that correct?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That's correct.
  MR. KELBERG: Doctor, do you consider yourself an advocate for Mr. Simpson?

 DR. HUIZENGA: I consider myself Mr. Simpson's doctor. When someone comes into my office, I'm their doctor.

 MR. KELBERG: And much of medical interpretation is subjective in nature, is it not, doctor?

 DR. HUIZENGA: I think that there is a degree of subjectiveness and blood tests don't tell all that much in many instances.

 MR. KELBERG: Well, for example, the grip test, for example, you said you didn't use any kind of objective measuring device, you didn't have one, so you had the test as you demonstrated with me, and you felt that he had normal grip strength. That is a subjective evaluation, is it not, doctor?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, it is.

 MR. KELBERG: And doctor, did you ever feel that it was part of your responsibility to try and prepare a Defense for Mr. Simpson to the charges?

 DR. HUIZENGA: No, absolutely not.
 MR. KELBERG: Doctor, can you see that--do you have the copy of this letter in your material?

 DR. HUIZENGA: I don't have a copy of that.

 MR. KELBERG: So doctor, in your opinion, this doesn't reflect that you were an advocate for Mr. Simpson in asking one of his lawyers whether this represented the kind of statement he sought?

 DR. HUIZENGA: No, absolutely not. Basically in my mind it was he wanted me to summarize my entire findings and I didn't know if that was too much or too little detail. I knew that it was all truthful. I just didn't know if he wanted me to expand or contract because he had some problems with some of my charts apparently.
 MR. KELBERG: Did you consider that as part of that responsibility it was to try and get him acquitted of these charges?

 DR. HUIZENGA: No, I really didn't, as a matter of fact.

 MR. KELBERG: Would you look, if you would, please, the last paragraph of that letter directed to "Dear Bob" Mr. Shapiro.


 MR. KELBERG: And for the record: "The night sweats Mr. Simpson complained of may be pertinent to the Court testimony of the chauffeur who implied OJ was quite warm when he got in the limo. We need to follow up on this from a medical standpoint." You wrote that, didn't you, doctor?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, I did.
 MR. KELBERG: Now, doctor, you told Mr. Shapiro on direct that in your opinion Mr. Simpson could hold a knife, right?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, I did.

 MR. KELBERG: Would he also be able, in your opinion, to grab the hair of Nicole Brown Simpson and yank her head back to hyperextend her neck prior to taking a knife and slashing at her throat area? Did he have the strength in his left hand to do that, sir.

 DR. HUIZENGA: In a stationary situation, yes.

 MR. KELBERG: And when stationary I want to you assume she has collapsed on the walkway in front of her condominium. That's the kind of condition you are talking about, right?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That's correct.

 MR. KELBERG: And in your opinion he could do that?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That is correct.

 MR. KELBERG: And not only could he do that, doctor, in your opinion could he then with his right hand holding a knife slit her throat? Did he have the strength in his hand to do that?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Given a stationary hypothetical as you have said, yes, I believe that that would be possible.

 MR. KELBERG: If you wanted to portray Mr. Simpson in worse condition with respect to that knee and limitation of movement, you would have done so by giving him a greater limitation of flexion, 25 to 30, than what is described in your report as 15 to 10; is that correct?

 DR. HUIZENGA: I was basically talking off the top of my best of recollections and obviously wasn't reading my report when I gave that answer, but my report--

 MR. KELBERG: Doctor, has Mr. Simpson been evaluated at your suggestion by an orthopedist, since June 15th, 1994?

 DR. HUIZENGA: I discussed it with his orthopedist. His--he has no acute reasons to be seen by an orthopedist currently, so no, he has not.

 MR. KELBERG: Would you agree it would be more appropriate to have his orthopedist come in and give an opinion on an area within the orthopedist's field of specialty than for you who by your admission is not an orthopedist--

 DR. HUIZENGA: Correct.

 MR. KELBERG: Dr. Huizenga, wouldn't it be appropriate, if one were concerned about orthopedic limitations of Mr. Simpson to have Dr. Jobe, his orthopedist of many years, examine him before trial, right?

 DR. HUIZENGA: I'm not conducting the Defense.

MR. KELBERG: My question, doctor, is what, if anything, have you done to independently evaluate any limitations Mr. Simpson may have had over the last three months of his life before June 15th, 1994?

DR. HUIZENGA: I have requested all his previous medical records, but of course those are not helpful in the last three months.

MR. KELBERG: Because he hadn't seen a doctor for eleven months?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That is exactly correct.
 MR. KELBERG: And doctor, assuming that these same witnesses, when asked about any observation of any kind of physical limitation or evidence of distress by Mr. Simpson indicated they saw no such limitation or distress, assuming that that is accurate testimony, would that be inconsistent with what you would expect on June 12th, given your findings of June 15th?

 DR. HUIZENGA: I saw a limp on the 15th. If he had no limp on the 12th, then obviously something has changed in the interval.

 MR. KELBERG: Or perhaps Mr. Simpson was faking a limp in your office?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That certainly would be in the differential.
 MR. KELBERG: Doctor, what did do you to assess the power of his upper torso?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Basically looking at the flexion contractures of the elbows and the difficulty with the wrist. That is--that is--that is the only point that I'm basing that on.

 MR. KELBERG: And doctor, for example, would you describe the condition of Mr. Simpson's upper torso.

DR. HUIZENGA: Absolutely well-muscled.

 MR. KELBERG: Now, doctor, if Mr. Simpson murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman after being enraged, you would expect that he would be in the throes of an adrenaline rush; is that correct?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That is correct.

 MR. KELBERG: What test did you do to see Mr. Simpson ever attempt to run to see how well he could run? Did you ever ask him to run at any time?

 DR. HUIZENGA: I never asked him to run.

 MR. KELBERG: And that would be the best test, would it not, to see how well he could run given his arthritic condition as you found it?

 DR. HUIZENGA: He told me he could not run and you're right, I took him at his word.
 MR. KELBERG: All right. Now, doctor, if Mr. Simpson had had a glove on his left hand, that area would in your opinion be covered if the glove were still being worn; would it not be the situation?

 DR. HUIZENGA: It would be difficult to get this sort of abrasion unless there was something inside the glove if in fact your--your premise of wearing a glove were correct, yes.
 MR. KELBERG: Doctor, during the recess, did you count the number of abrasions that you
identified on the left hand or wrist area of Mr. Simpson?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, I did.

 MR. KELBERG: How many separate abrasions did you identify?


 MR. KELBERG: And did you also count the number of cuts to his left hand?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, I did.

 MR. KELBERG: How many did you identify?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Three cuts, one of which, on the fourth finger, had both an a and B portion.

 MR. KELBERG: Now, doctor, you said that Mr. Simpson told you he got these injuries in Chicago; is that correct?

 DR. HUIZENGA: No. That's incorrect.

 MR. KELBERG: That he cut it on glass?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That's correct.

 MR. KELBERG: Doctor, I want you to assume that there's been testimony received in this case that blood that was genetically tested and found to match Mr. Simpson's was found in the foyer and driveway areas of Mr. Simpson's home--  Doctor, in your opinion, would the kind of cuts that you observed in Mr.
Simpson's hand, left hand, be the kind of cuts that can leave blood drops?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, they can.

 MR. KELBERG: Doctor, you are suggesting that Mr. Simpson is not being truthful with these people regarding his medical condition because he views himself as a pitchman for a product as a result of which he is willing to say things that are not true to please the people paying him to make the speech? Is that what you are suggesting.

 DR. HUIZENGA: I cannot get inside Mr. Simpson's head.
MR. SHAPIRO: Have you in any way tried to mislead this jury based on your medical findings and observations of Mr. Simpson on June the 15th?

 DR. HUIZENGA: No, I haven't.
 MR. SHAPIRO: And to your knowledge was Mr. Simpson treated for the last three and a half years for arthritis?

 DR. HUIZENGA: Yes, he was.

 MR. SHAPIRO: And do you believe that that was to set up some type of Defense for a crime that would be committed five years or four years later?

 DR. HUIZENGA: I would not believe that, no.
 MR. SHAPIRO: Is there any patient that you treat that would not be capable of cutting someone with a knife?

 DR. HUIZENGA: No, not unless they had a fracture on that arm or some type of obvious deformity.

 MR. SHAPIRO: --is your opinion any different as to whether or not Mr. Simpson had any
bruises on him when you observed him on the 15th of June?

 DR. HUIZENGA: No, it is not.

 MR. SHAPIRO: Is the cut on the index finger of Mr. Simpson consistent with somebody who broke a drinking glass that you would find in a hotel bathroom?

 DR. HUIZENGA: The middle finger, this cut--the proximal or the distal? There is two cuts on that third finger.
 MR. KELBERG: Now, doctor, you did see what you said I think originally was the commercial video?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That's correct.

 MR. KELBERG: And all of the aerobic exercise that we see in that type of environment is included in the commercial video. Some of what we saw because, they didn't multiple takes, is not included in the commercial video, correct?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That's correct.

 MR. KELBERG: And the commercial video has Mr. Simpson taking golf swings and shooting a basketball and so forth; is that correct?

 DR. HUIZENGA: That's correct.
