Jailed Simpson Sued By Heart Attack Victim

Incarcerated O.J. SIMPSON has been named in a new personal injury lawsuit, holding him responsible for heart attacks suffered by one of the victims of his 2007 hotel heist in Las Vegas.
Memorabilia dealer Bruce Fromong, who was held at gunpoint during Simpson's raid, alleges he has been hospitalised on several occasions since the September 2007 robbery - as a result of the terror he was put through.
The American footballer-turned-actor is serving a minimum of nine years in prison after he was found guilty of masterminding the kidnapping and robbery.
According to TMZ.com, Fromong is suing for compensation and damages for infliction of emotional distress, negligence, assault and battery.
Simpson was convicted in December (08) but has lodged an appeal on the grounds of judicial misconduct, a lack of racial diversity on the jury and errors in sentencing and jury instructions.
His request to be freed on bail while he fights his conviction was denied earlier this month (05Sep09).
