KY Restaurant Owner: O.J. Should Kill Lawsuit Plans

5/11/2007 3:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If O.J. Simpson tries to legally pursue the restaurant owner who banned him from his place, the Goldman family will have his back.

Kentucky restaurant owner Jeff Ruby was on "The Big Show With Steve Mason & John Ireland" on ESPN Radio last night, saying, "I got a phone call from the Goldman lawyers, and he's not going to be able to do this lawsuit anyway, because they've already taken preemptive action in case there is a claim." Ruby says any money Simpson might win would go to the Goldmans, who would then give it back to Ruby.

Simpson's attorney, Yale Galanter, said earlier this week that he feels the banishment was racially motivated and had nothing to with ex-football star being accused of murder. Galanter, according to the AP, said he would pursue the matter further and might try to go after the restaurant's liquor license.

Ruby would then have to again decide whether he wanted to serve the juice.

Racially motivated? Why is it that Michael Jordan dined at that restaurant after OJ left with no problems? The color of OJ Simpson's skin had nothing to do with being asked to leave, and he should get over it. He needs to realize that he may have been acquited, but not in the eyes of 99% of the American public.

I wouldn't serve him either. It is about time O.J. finds out how the majority of people feel about him.

What the hell is this scum of the earth doing the rounds for. Can`t he go hide in his cabin in the hills somewhere. What he got away with to Nicole and Ron is just a mockery to criminal law. Boy, MR JUICE your juice is UP!!!

im sure the real reason OJ wants to sue is that blacks were slaves 400 years ago or something like that. And it may be racial, if Mr. Ruby is a rascist against asshats.... : D

How does OJ have money for a lawyer? That lawyer should only be doing work related to his civil case and the Goldman family and that's it. If OJ can afford to sue a hard working man, the Goldman family should have first crack at that money before OJ can pay any lawyer.
