OJ Simpson's Suit Suit

5/21/2007 3:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has triggered a legal war by breaking the story that a sports memorabilia guy is trying to peddle the suit that OJ Simpson wore when he heard the improbable words, "not guilty."

David Cook, the lawyer for Fred Goldman (father of the man Simpson slaughtered), filed legal papers Monday in Santa Monica asking a judge to grab that suit.

As TMZ first reported, Bruce Formong, a sports memorabilia dealer, was trying to sell the suit, shirt and tie for $25,000. Alfred Beardsley, another sports memorabilia dealer, has contacted Goldman and said he will be taking possession of the suit. Beardsley told TMZ on Friday he believes he could turn around and sell it for $100,000.

Cook tells TMZ he's "suspicious" that Simpson is behind the suit sale. Cook is asking for an order that the suit be turned over to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department. The Sheriff is responsible for enforcing court judgments. You'll recall Simpson owes the Goldmans in excess of $30 mil.

Cook says if the suit has been sold, he'll ask the judge to force the seller to turn over the loot.

UPDATE: TMZ just got off the phone with Alfred Beardsley. He said he had a conference call this morning with Cook and Kim Goldman. Beardsley says he plans to acquire the suit, and the trio talked about the Goldmans getting a percentage of the sale to help satisfy the outstanding judgment. The court could engineer the ground rules tomorrow.

Ya Think?    

OJ's a dirtbag murderer and the least he can do is pay up on the civil judgment. How anyone can talk smack about Fred Goldman in this matter is beyond me. His son was slaughtered like an animal by that barbarian OJ. Any parent would be out of their mind after something like that. And you can bet your sweet ass that I'd be following every move that murdering maniac made for the rest of his life. I only hope OJ gets what's coming to him.

Hey #2,

Het got off because his lawyers played the race card, and a mostly Black jury just didn't care that he murdered Whites.

I don't care that he murdered anyone these days. What was that, 1994 or 1995? He killed 2 people. Big deal, nothing to see here so move on, folks. How many murder victims has this country in the last 13 years? How about the last 13 months? It just shouldn't be that big of a thing to any of us who aren't friends or relatives of the people involved in this.

Why can't this man leave OJ alone?

The criminal court found him not quilty. Which means as the case stands OJ is innocent


BLACK POWER. What OJ did is in revenge to what the whites did to our ancestors during slavery


KARMA IS A BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ANBODY Ever Notice that Fred Goldman, Not Coleman like in the Bird Cage - Funny Movie, LOOKS Like the Burgermeister.

HOW MUCH YOU WANNA BET THAT BRUCE FORMANG, THE GUY SELLING THE SUIT, IS WHITE? They sure can sell out their Race for some easy cash.

P.S. Mammy, YOU WON'T BE FIRST NEXT TIME!!!
