Win Another One For the Good Guys … OJ Simpson Barred from Spending “If I Did It” Dinero


OJ … NO MONEY FOR YOU, at least for the time being. Its nice to see the Juice OJ_squeezed_juicy_orangesqueezed every so often and its about time.

First the money from the “If I Did It” book deal was frozen, then a judge ordered OJ to stop spending the money, now Superior Court Judge Gerald Rosenberg has barred OJ Simpson from spending monies from the ill-fated book deal.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A Los Angeles judge on Wednesday barred O.J. Simpson from spending, at least for now, the advance for his aborted book “If I Did It” about the murders of his ex-wife and her friend.

Superior Court Judge Gerald Rosenberg’s ruling broadens a January restraining order sought by the father of murder victim Ron Goldman and marks the latest twist in an ongoing legal fight over the reported $1 million advance.

Rosenberg’s January order prohibited Simpson from spending or moving funds from any past book or movie deals at least until a February 20 hearing — but exempted the “If I Did It” advance because Fred Goldman had filed a separate case in federal court over that money.

      My opinion of OJ is as low as anyone else’s, but something about this puzzles me. On what ground can a judge tell someone not to spend money that was freely given to him by a company?

      The article says that this was done in line with a restraining order. I suppose that the ultimate point is to force OJ to return the money to the company and to prohibit publication of the book.

      I would think, though, that if the company chose to take the risk of giving him an advance payment, then basically an action would be properly directed at the company.

      Anyone with legal knowledge is free to straighten me out on this. I can’t imagine anyone wanting to buy a book by OJ Simpson (or whoever he would pay to ghostwrite it), but the ruling certainly seems odd to me. The fact that I like it doesn’t offset the weirdness.

      Why wouldn’t the judge free the money/accounts?
      Should this money be going to the Goldmans claim?

      Well at any rate, I am glad this has happened.

      BTW Maybe the Judge could follow Hillary’s mentality and give that money to MS. Pelosi to fund her personal airplane.

      Doesn’t he still have the little matter of a 33 million dollar judgement to settle….thats why the freeze I think.

      Problem is he’s already stated that he spent all that money…what options do the plantiffs have now?

      Thanks for the clarification, Mike. Makes sense if it’s part of that.

      OJ set up a “dummy” bank account to receive book advancement dollars. It’s an attempt to defraud the Browns and Mr. Goldman from receiving any settlement $$ while giving the middle finger to the courts.

      However, those who are determined to be rich, fall into
      temptation and a snare and many senseless and hurtful
      desires, which plunge meninto destruction and ruin. For
      the love of money is a root of all sorts of injurious
      things, and by reaching out for this love some have been
      led astray from the faith and have stabbed themselves all
      over with many pains. – 1 Timothy 6: 9,10

      I rarely quote the Bible, but I have been in the middle of
      a divorce for six years, with a man that is an egomaniac
      just like O.J. I may not get anything out of a marriage
      that lasted over two decades, but I fight for our children.
      I only hope that I am still alive, when it is all said and
      done. This is a scripture that I refer to often, as it
      gives me a true perspective of what really matters.

      O.J.’s slaughter upon the lives of Nicole and Ron was just
      a moment in time, compared to the lifetime of stabbing that
      he has inflicted upon himself. The only thing that matters
      to him is his money and the things that it does for him. I
      salute the Brown and Goldman families in their quest to make
      every day of O.J.’s life miserable… he brought it upon
      himself. The criminal justice system let them down and all
      they have left is the settlement of a wrongful death suit.
      I pray that they have the strength and courage to continue
      in their fight with this self-consumed maniac.
