Editor’s Note: O.J. Simpson is on trial on robbery and kidnapping charges nearly a year after police arrested him in Las Vegas, Nevada. Prosecutors say Simpson and five other men stormed into a Las Vegas hotel room last September 13 to recover sports memorabilia that Simpson said belonged to him. They say at least two men with Simpson had guns as they robbed two sports memorabilia dealers. The following dispatches come from our Paul Vercammen covering the trial:

Judge Jackie Glass dismissed the 20th potential juror in the OJ Simpson kidnapping and armed robbery trial after the manager of the flooring company said there's not a smidgeon of doubt about keeping her personal feelings out of the case.
The excused panelist said "I felt he (Simpson) got away with murder."
The middle aged woman, alluding to the Simpson murder trial, said "I think he was guilty the first time."
So far just 8 of 40 jurors needed to pass for cause, have withered the questioning process of prosecutors and defense attorneys.
Jurors waiting for their turn can be seen rubbing their foreheads and propping their heads in their hands.
The jurors have been dismissed for lunch.
