The question of whether a California sports agent really has the suit O.J. Simpson wore at his 1995 acquittal is set to be answered in a Los Angeles courtroom.

By Los Angeles Times LAS VEGAS -- The father and sister of Ronald Goldman greeted O.J. Simpson's conviction here on armed robbery and kidnapping charges with tears, laughter and a belief that their persistent efforts to collect a civil judgment from the former NFL star paid off, a family spokesman said Saturday morning.

By Tim Rutten Los Angeles Times If you practice journalism long enough, you begin to develop a mental list of characters you hope never again to type in a particular sequence. Take, for example, the letters that spell "O.J. Simpson." Like most sensible people, you probably have been doing something useful with your time recently -- figuring out, say, what "field dressing a moose" actually entails, watching your 401(k) implode or setting up a rescue program for rabid skunks. You haven't, in...

A Miami federal judge on Tuesday ordered O.J. Simpson's oldest daughter to give a deposition in a lawsuit that accuses the former NFL star of trying to hide proceeds from his ill-fated book, If I Did It.

By Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Testing the waters of his tarnished celebrity a decade after his acquittal on murder charges, O.J. Simpson appeared at a Halloween-themed comic book convention on Friday night to sign autographs, but few beside the media seemed to care. Simpson's rare public outing in Los Angeles at the annual NecroComicon show drew little interest, with no more than a dozen people traipsing up a rear stairwell into a small room to glimpse the former football...
