Goldman Family Seeks $42 Million From Simpson

The family who won a wrongful death lawsuit against O.J. SIMPSON will continue their pursuit of the $42 million (GBP28.3 million) award owed by the disgraced star as he serves jail time for his involvement in an armed robbery.
The former American footballer-turned-actor was sentenced to at least 15 years in prison on Friday (05Dec08) after a Las Vegas jury convicted him of orchestrating a sports memorabilia heist at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino last year (Sep07).
The conviction came 13 years to the day since Simpson, 61, was acquitted of the double murder of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
A lawyer for Goldman's father, Fred Goldman, tells the New York Post the $33.5 million (GBP22.5 million) award his family won in subsequent wrongful death suit against the star has increased to $42 million (GBP28.3 million) with interest.
And Goldman is reportedly determined to pursue Simpson's assets during his sentence to collect the sum.
Goldman's collection lawyer, David Cook, says, "Even though Mr. Simpson has changed his address from Florida to Nevada, we're still going on."
Simpson will be eligible for parole after nine years, and could serve a maximum of 33 years.
He is reportedly planning to appeal his 10-charge conviction in the latest case.
