Q10C: REASON FOR DIFFERENT VERDICTS: TESTIMONY AND EVIDENCE ALLOWED

I'm going to name some things that were different in Simpson's first trial on criminal charges and his second trial on civil charges. Please tell me if you think that's a major or minor reason the verdicts in each trial were different. Some different testimony and different evidence was allowed in the two trials. Do you think that was a major reason or a minor reason the verdicts were different, or what?
