Goldman’s son, Ron, was killed in 1994 along with Nicole Brown Simpson.
Simpson was acquitted in the killings of his ex-wife and her acquaintance — a waiter who had come to her Los Angeles home to return a pair of eyeglasses.
However, Simpson was found liable in a wrongful death civil case in 1997 and ordered to pay a total of $33.5 million in compensation to the Brown and Goldman families.(Full story)
Goldman attorney Jonathan Polak said that even though it’s believed Simpson has gotten financial compensation for his appearances at trade shows and exhibitions, only a small amount has been turned over to the Goldmans.
Goldman’s lawyers announced the move in a brief news conference with Goldman and his daughter, Kim.
“With this filing, Mr. Simpson will finally have to answer to the judgment before him,” Polak said.
Simpson’s $4 million pension, set up when the former pro football star, actor and ad pitchman was making millions, is not subject to civil court judgments.
“Simpson has made a career of using the law to avoid justice,” Polak said. “Now Mr. Goldman can use the law to get justice.”
