oj-simpson-suit.JPGThe Smithsonian Institution has said "no thanks" to a donation of a suit worn by O.J. Simpson when he was acquitted by a jury of double-homicide in 1995.

The decision comes a day after a judge approved the donation. A spokeswoman for the Smithsonian said that the suit is not appropriate for the museum's collection.

Now, the suit will be shopped around to "another museum or institution of higher learning" pursuant to an deal between Simpson, Fred Goldman and Simspson's former agent, Mike Gilbert.
