SANTA MONICA, California (CNN) -- Jury selection inched forward Tuesday in the O.J. Simpson civil trial, as the final questioning of potential panelists began.
Two women were dismissed, and at the current rate of questioning by prosecution and defense attorneys, it is expected to take more than a week to seat a 12-person panel with eight alternates.
Simpson was in court for the first time in weeks, and appeared relaxed and animated as he spoke to reporters. The families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman are suing Simpson for undisclosed damages for their June 1994 stabbing deaths. Simpson was acquitted of the killings last October.
