Fred Goldman filed new court documents in Nevada in hopes of collecting a 20-plus year debt from OJ Simpson.
In 1995, OJ was found not guilty of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Fred’s son, Ron Goldman. However, he was found liable in the killing of Goldman and was ordered to pay the victim’s family $33.5 million in a 1997 civil trial.
As OJ has only paid $132,849.53 to the Goldman family, interest caused the initial award to rise to $57 million by 2015. Reports say that amount has now risen over $70 million.
Fred Goldman claims OJ has continued to make money and live a carefree life since being released from prison, in 2017, after an armed robbery conviction from a 2007 incident. Goldman alleges that the ex-NFL running back has been making money by signing autographs for collectors and has not used the money to pay his debt.
In 2018, a Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Gerald Rosenberg denied Goldman’s request for immediate payments after OJ allegedly hosted an autograph session because he failed to name any specific persons who have made money off of Simpson’s name. Goldman has filed the new lawsuit in Nevada as it’s where OJ Simpson is currently based.
