O.J. Charged With Ten Felonies
Bump and Update: O.J. is charged with ten felonies and a misdemeanor, including kidnapping with a deadly weapon. Here's the Criminal Complaint (pdf.) The kidnapping charge is directed at Bruce Fromong, who is now in critical condition in a hospital in LA, having suffered a heart attack. I hope he recovers, but I wonder whether if he dies, they'll charge O.J. with that too.
Judge Denies Goldman Attempt to Seize All O.J.'s Property
A Los Angeles judge today denied a request by the family of Ron Goldman to seize all O.J.'s property. [More...]
A Superior Court judge tentatively denied a request today by the father of murder victim Ron Goldman to take O.J. Simpson's earnings from everything from autograph signings to video games to satisfy a multimillion-dollar legal judgment awarded 11 years ago.
O.J. Simpson has four pensions that by law are exempt from the Goldman and Brown family judgments against him.
The Goldmans also, unsuccessfully for now, sought to take the Rolex watch they saw O.J. wearing in a photo the day of his arrest.
The judge told [Goldman lawyer David] Cook it was his responsibility to obtain the watch and have it appraised and he set an Oct. 16 hearing to determine whether the watch would be exempt from the judgment.
Question: What if O.J. can show he bought the watch with his pension funds? Would it be exempt from the judgment?
O.J.'s lawyer said he has tried to settle the judgment with the Goldman's lawyer.
Cook replied it would be "a cold day in hell" when that would happen. "It is inconceivable that the father of a murder victim would sit and haggle," Cook said.
He won't haggle? What does he think he's doing by arguing with the Judge to get a picayune used Rolex?
