A judge has put the squeeze on OJ Simpson and order the Juice’s funds held by an attorney to be given to the Goldman family. Although the money the Goldmans will receive is a mere slice of the $33.5 million that OJ Simpson judgment against Simpson, it is a shot across the bow. Maybe this is a good sign for things to come as the Goldmans are fighting over the money rights to OJ’s ill-fated book, “If I Did It”.
Attorney Leonardo D. Starke is believed to be holding about $3,500 for Simpson in a client trust account in Florida, where the former football star now lives, Goldman attorney David Cook said Wednesday.
The amount is small but the court ruling could have broader implications for the Goldman family, which has tried for a decade to collect on a $33.5-million judgment against Simpson. Virtually none of the money has been collected, and the family has accused Simpson of trying to conceal his income.
“It is a shot over the bow,” Cooke said. “It’s significant that we’re reaching money over state lines, and it’s a significant message to Mr. Simpson that we will find every asset there is.” (Yahoo News)
