The Yalta Conference, sometimes called the Crimea Conference, was held
February 4–11, 1945 and convened in the Livadia Palace. It was the major
World War II conference. It was the second conference of the “Big Three”
Allied leaders–U.S. President
Franklin D. Roosevelt, British Prime Minister
Winston Churchill, and Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin–and the war had
progressed mightily since their last meeting, which had taken place in
Tehran in late 1943.

On this day in 1945, during World War II, the Yalta Agreement was
signed by
U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt (center) British Prime 
Minister Winston Churchill (left) and Soviet leader Josef Stalin. 


The leaders agreed to demand Germany’s unconditional surrender 
and began plans for a post-war world. Most of the agreements were 
initially kept secret, but the revelations of the conference particulars became controversial after Soviet-American wartime cooperation degenerated into the Cold War.

Daniel Petrocelli, a partner at L.A.'s O'Melveny & Myers, recalls the day Ron Goldman's father hired him to lead a civil lawsuit, why Goldman referred to Simpson only as the "killer" and the "visible release of pain in [his] face ... when the verdict was read."
On this day in 1997, a civil jury in California found O.J. Simpson (Left) liable in the death of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and
Ron Goldman. Goldman’s parents (right) were awarded $8.5 million
in compensatory damages.

On this day in 1981, Iran released 52 Americans that had been held hostage for 444 days. The hostages were flown to Algeria and then
to a U.S. base in Wiesbaden, West Germany. The release occurred minutes after the
U.S. presidency had passed from Jimmy Carter
to Ronald Reagan. The Iranians waited until the hour President
Reagan was sworn in before allowing the plane with the hostages
to take off.
