Judge Bans O.J. From Getting Further Book Money

by Mark5019 / March 14, 2007 3:16 AM PDT

SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- A judge in Santa Monica has banned O.J. Simpson from receiving any further compensation from a canceled book deal and television interview and ordered the bundled book rights to be auctioned off.

The judge ordered the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department to hold an auction for the rights to "If I Did It," in which the former NFL star was to explain how he might have committed the killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown-Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.

The book and television interview were never released amid public outrage.

The proceeds from the auction would be turned over to Goldman's family, which has been trying to collect a $33.5 million civil judgment from Simpson in a wrongful death lawsuit.

With interest, the judgment is estimated at $38 million.

No date has been set for the auction.

good as this man should rot in hell damn killer

Interesting comment from OJ's attorney
by Josh K / March 14, 2007 11:06 PM PDT

Apparently all the revenue from this book went into a shelter account in his kids' names, so Fred Goldman couldn't make claim to any of it. OJ has been doing that will all of his income since the civil verdict. In commenting on that, OJ's attorney said "My client has already paid for his misdeeds."

Sounds like an admission of his client's guilt to me!
