Oj Collector Pal Brought To Trial To Price Memorabilia

LATEST: OJ SIMPSON's macabre personal belongings are to be rifled through in court in a bid to raise a little of the $33.5 million (GBP18.6 million) he owes the family of his slain wife and her lover.

The families of RON GOLDMAN and NICOLE BROWN SIMPSON won the hefty financial settlement in a civil verdict against Simpson, after the former football star and actor was found not guilty in the pair's murder a decade ago.

But Simpson, who maintains his innocence, has paid virtually nothing - finding legal loopholes in Miami, Florida, which keep his personal finances safe.

But now, Ron Goldman's father FRED GOLDMAN is taking an OJ memorabilia collector, who is also a close friend of Simpson's, to court in a bid to value a host of items he claims should be sold to pay the two families.

Items under consideration include photographs from the trial and a reported police tape from the Goldman/Brown Simpson crime scene.

Collector ALFRED BEARDSLEY claims the small collection of 49 items has a street value of over $100,000 (GBP55,500).

Beardsley claims attorneys have summoned him to court to answer questions about where he buys his OJ Simpson memorabilia and how much he has paid for it in a bid to uncover whether or not Simpson is hiding money.
