Goldman Wants O.J.'s Trinkets, As Seen on TMZ

9/18/2007 2:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Fred Goldman's attorney was in a Los Angeles court today, filing a motion to request a number of items believed to belong to O.J. Simpson -- including a Rolex they saw in a photo on TMZ.


Goldman's lawyer, David Cook, was after sports memorabilia seized from Simpson's Vegas hotel room -- the money from the goods would go towards satisfying the $33.5 million wrongful death judgment against Simpson ten years ago. Cook is also after money Simpson may have received from his involvement in the video game "All Pro Football 2K8."

Cook even comments on how O.J.'s arrest has helped the Goldmans.


He joked that "in a bizarre way," Simpson's latest arrest actually assists the Goldman family, because the items seized in Vegas will now be worth a lot more. Simpson has eluded payment on the judgment by moving to Florida, where state law prohibits his house from being seized. His football pension is also not attachable.

Ron Goldman was killed on June 12, 1994 while returning his friend Nicole Brown Simpson's mother's eyeglasses, which were left at the restaurant where he'd been working.

This idiot, Goldman, needs to get on with his life. No matter what the whiners of America say, and even though the slaying of his son WAS a tragic event, OJ was found "Not Guilty" in criminal court. Just because Goldman's civil attorneys found a sympathetic pool of jurors to STICK it to Simpson later, is no reason for Mr. Goldigger, sorry, goldman, to harass a person to their grave. Regardless of what white America hopes is the truth (that OJ is guilty), the criminal court found him innocent.

And, yes, I’m white and wonder how the many innocent people in our jails, today, got there because of the theatrics of learned and skilled lawyers, but now via DNA testing, have been proven innocent.

I hope the Goldman's get every single dime of the 33.5 Million that they were awarded. All of you that think OJ was innocent, you're fooling yourself. He did it. He did it. He did it.

Simpson should rot in jail. He moved to Florida to keep from paying up. He PUBLICLY stated that FG "would never get a dime" and that he "would never work again "to keep the Goldan's from getting a penny. Also take into account that one of OJ's "friends" stated that he had helped Simpson set up offshore bank accounts to hide his assets.

Had it been my child that had been SLAUGHTERED, I would have hunted that killer down like a dog and given him my own brand of justice. Think about it folks... how would YOU react if it had been YOUR child????

This is not a black/white thing. This is about a man who thinks he's above the law, and snubs his nose at a COURT ORDER to pay up.

At least he is now out of the Steve Biko-Nelson Mandela American version of apartheid which Americans of African heritage find themselves in. Passport or no, "go OJ, go."

I THINK IT IS APPALING THAT THE GOLDMANS WOULD RELEASE OJ'S BOOK. THAT TELLS ME THEY ARE SOLELY IN IT FOR THE MONEY. WHAT ABOUT THE BROWN FAMILY? THEY LOST A LOVED ONE AS WELL BUT AT LEAST THEY ARE CLASSY AND DIGNIFIED ENOUGH TO GET ON WITH THEIR LIVES AND NOT MAKE "BLOOD MONEY" LIKE THE GOLDMANS.
SHAME ON YOU.

#140, Why do you think it's appaling, for the Goldman's to release the book? I would be on his tail, for the rest of my, or his life. The jury might have brought back a Not Guilty, verdict, but, that doesn't make him, less guilty, than he already is. The jury was made up, of predominately African-American, and that is the only reason Simpson was found not guilty. Simpson doesn't even like his own race. He hasn't had one black girlfriend, since his first wife. He is one sicko! And, he needs to be bled, until he has nothing, nada, zero, zilch. Which one of you, calling the Goldman's names, has lost a child to a freakin lunatic? And, if you have, are you sitting peacefully on your dierreres, not even thinking of getting even, for taking a man's life, who had nothing to do with Nicole, except, to return her mother's eyeglasses. Don't try to molly-coddle Simpson, because, he is actually losing his mind. That's why the book, came about. Noone can live with two murders on their conscience. I do expect to pick up the newspaper, and see where he has taken his own life. And, it can't happen too quickly!!

You people telling the Goldman's to get a life, make me sick. If I were Mr. Goldman, I would take that Rolex, invite the news media over, lay the Rolex on the ground, and smash it to smithereens!! None of you, including me, know what the Goldman's, and the Brown's are going through. Try walking in their shoes for a moment, or two. You couldn't do it, neither could I, after seeing my son slaughtered like an animal. You people, sitting in judgement of the Goldman's, and worrying about the Simpson kids, did O.J. worry about them, his own children, when he was slitting their mother's throat?? And, what right did he have, he, and Nicole were divorced, so, even if Ron, was more than a friend, that marriage was over!!! He had no right, being any where near Nicole. Look up the word, "Divorce," in Webster's. Take him to the cleaners, Mr. Goldman, he needs to be taken to the gallows.

OJ was acquitted in criminal court and that should have been the end of it. However Money grubber Goldman is still out there.OJ gets money from his pension, so now he can't buy anything w/o unsympathetic Goldman trying to steal it. He needs to move on and yes it is hard but he needs to do something constructive ala John Walsh. How much energy does he waste and how much dignity does he lose? All that hate just destroys Goldman it doesn't really hurt OJ. For those who will make a dumbass comment I am white and have a child.
