The Smithsonian Institution has rejected a donation of the suit OJ Simpson wore when he was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife and her friend.

The decision came a day after a judge approved the donation as the solution to a long court battle over the clothing.

But Smithsonian spokeswoman Linda St James said the suit was not appropriate for the Washington DC museum's collection.

The agreement reached on Monday between Simpson, Fred Goldman and Simpson's former sports agent, Mike Gilbert, provided that if the Smithsonian turned it down, they would seek another museum or institution.

It was not immediately clear which entity would be offered the suit next.

Football star and actor Simpson wore the suit on October 3 1995, when he was acquitted of killing Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
