Baden testified at the trial of OJ Simpson at Sergeant Evan Vela’s court-martial. On August 10 and 11 of 1995, Baden made claims on the OJ Simpson trials, claims that he later disowned.

At first, he claimed that Nicole Brown was still standing and conscious when her throat was slashed. Moreover, he made this claim to dispute the theory that Brown was the intended target.

The prosecution later argued that Brown was murdered first before the intended target, and the sole reason is that the soles of her shoes did not have any blood stains, despite too much blood at the crime scene. Also, Brown was unconscious when her throat was cut because she had very few defensive wounds.

These claims by the prosecution made Dr. Baden later disown his initial claims at the subsequent civil trial the following year. Moreover
He admitted that it was abnormal to think that someone would stand still while their throat is being cut and not fight back.

His 2nd allegation which he later gave up on was that; Ron Goldman stayed conscious and resisted his killers for about 10 minutes with a severed jugular vein. The purpose of this testimony was to extend the length of time it took the murders to happen to secure OJ Simpson and Alabi.

In a subsequent civil trial, he denied ever making such claims and after being shown a clip of him making the above statements, he completely disowned it. Goldman’s attorney alleged that Baden was paid to say what he said.
