Win One for the Good Guys … Federal Judge Freezes OJ Simpson Book Money


Maybe this court ruling will wipe the smug look off OJ Simpson’s face, even if it is for a OJ_simpsonSmugshort time. Today U.S. District Judge Manuel Real issued an order prohibiting OJ Simpson from using any of the money he received from his canceled book, “If I did It” and TV deal. Of course who knows how much of the money Simpson has already spend? After all it costs a lot of money to search for the real killer of his murdered wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.

U.S. District Judge Manuel Real issued the order Wednesday, freezing the money during a hearing about a lawsuit filed last month by Goldman’s father. It remains in effect until a Jan. 24 hearing.

The federal lawsuit accuses Simpson of fraudulent conveyance and alleges that he created a shell corporation called Lorraine Brooke Associates last March that received at least $1.1 million.

The suit contends the company was created to hide money from the book and TV deal so the Goldman family could not seize any of it to satisfy a 1997 wrongful death lawsuit judgment. With interest, that judgment is estimated at $38 million. (AP via Yahoo News)

News Corp. has said the company paid $880,000 to a third party in connection with the project.

      As if O.J. wasn’t bad enough, we have these news organizations investing their money into a project that expects to profit from Nicole Brown’s violent and tragic death? What is wrong with these people? “IF I did it?” That’s rediculous! What do these people take us for?

      Hey O.J., if we could do you and get away with it, we would… but, instead, we shall just ignore your ugly ass.

      Just don’t understand what Nicole EVER saw in you!

      OJ is OJ and one day his kids will come to the realize that he did indeed murder their mother.
      But truly the troubling aspect of this story is the greed of the News Corp. They knew what they were doing in helping hide a payout to this murderer.

      Isn’t fraudulent conveyance OJ’s middle name?

      Fred Goldman has gotten all wrapped up in the money now. He needs to put his son to rest and let go. He is beginning to show his greed. It doesn’t say much for him. Now, if he plans on donating all this money to a good cause. Victims Rights or something else, then go for it, otherwise it is appearing that he is only focused on the money
