LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The suit, tie and shirt that O.J. Simpson wore on the day he was acquitted of murder have been acquired by the Newseum in Washington, D.C.

The clothing donation was announced Tuesday, ending a dispute involving the former football star, Fred Goldman, whose son was killed, and Simpson's former manager who had the suit.

The suit was first offered to the Smithsonian Institution, but the museum said it was not appropriate for its collection.

The Newseum said it will be added to a collection of artifacts related to coverage of Simpson's trial.

Simpson wore the suit on Oct. 3, 1995, during his televised acquittal of the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
