Johnnie Cochran and Winnie the Pooh

Johnnie Cochran has been hired

by the family who owns Winnie the Pooh rights in their fight with Disney over millions in royalties. Interestingly, Disney is being represented by Daniel Petrocelli, whose previous client included the family of Ron Goldman in the civil trial against O.J. Simpson. [Via MCN who put it best, "If Pooh's The Shit, Please Pay for It."]
