    Ito started his career in 1977 by working at the Los Angeles district attorney's office and worked on organized crime and gang cases.

In 2012, Los Angeles County made budget cuts and closed down more than 50 courtrooms, including Judge Ito's, per Networth Height Salary, and he eventually retired in 2015. Not much is known about what the judge has been up to since his retirement, but his name has popped up several times in the media in the past years.

Under the leadership of the late Johnnie Cochran, the all-star attorneys included Shapiro, Robert Kardashian, Alan Dershowitz, Barry Sheck, F. Lee Bailey, and six others, whose collective efforts garnered an acquittal for Simpson in what has been widely regarded as "the trial of the century" (per CBS News).

    Whatever Happened To F. Lee Bailey From The OJ Simpson Case?

    According to the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Bailey had made his name as an attorney over a three-decade-long career before joining Simpson's defense team, and, as quickly became apparent, he was something of an attention seeker. Bailey became the public face of the Simpson camp by hosting numerous televised press conferences in which he addressed the latest minutia of the case as it developed. He also became something of a pop culture figure for his successful cross-examination of police officer Mark Fuhrman, before which he told the press: "Any lawyer in his right mind who would not be looking forward to cross-examining Mark Fuhrman is an idiot."
