LAS VEGAS (AP) — O.J. Simpson’s lawyers resubmitted a Nevada Supreme Court appeal Wednesday seeking a new trial on grounds that the imprisoned former football star was misled by his lawyer and didn’t get a fair trial in his Las Vegas kidnapping and armed robbery case.

The 102-page document asks the seven justices to reconsider whether Simpson’s lead attorney at the time, Yale Galanter, had advance knowledge of the ill-fated September 2007 confrontation involving Simpson, several other men and two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas casino hotel.

Evidence at trial “tended to indicate that Galanter was involved in the alleged conspiracy,” current Simpson lawyers Patricia Palm, Ozzie Fumo and Tom Pitaro say in the appeal. “Galanter’s personal interest in hiding his pre-incident involvement is sufficiently substantial to indicate the existence of an actual conflict.”

Palm declined additional comment about the appeal, which was initially stalled by size and formatting issues after she submitted it May 21. Since last week, Palm double-spaced the document according to Chief Justice Mark Gibbon’s instructions and re-filed it. The justices haven’t decided if they will hold hearings on Simpson’s latest appeal and didn’t immediately set a date for a decision, court spokesman Michael Sommermeyer said.

The court is Nevada’s only appellate bench and cases can take months or longer to decide. The high court in September 2010 rejected a previous appeal by Galanter on behalf of Simpson.

    @@DANGEROUSBLKMAN…YOU ARE AN IDIOT, ILLITERATE, LAZY ASS, ILLITERATE, HEATHEN. it’s “DANGEROUSBLKMAN” like you that makes your own well deserved problems. THE “WHITE MAN’S MONEY (you speak of) is what is putting food and drugs on your lazy ass, worthless table. White man and the many good hard working black man’s taxes are supporting worthless pieces of crap like you! What do you mean O.J. is never going to win in a white mans court? How do you know it won’t be an all black jury if he gets a retrial? Dah! Stupid, uneducated (by choice) illiterate, pig racist is what and who you are. Go pick up your welfare check, food stamps, buy your drugs, whiskey and beer and go sit in your Section 8 housing paid for by hard working tax payers and blame the world for your problems. Obviously OJ won in the white man’s court when he was acquitted of the obvious murdering of Nicole and Ron. BY THE WAY..DID YOU NOT NOTE THERE WAS NO WHITE PEOPLE RIOTINGING IN THE STREETS BECAUSE OJ WAS ACQUITTED? NO KILLINGS, , BURNING OF CARS, BREAKING STORE WINDOWS AND HAULING OUT/STEALING MERCHANDISE? DRAGGING ANY BLACK TRUCK DRIVERS OUT OF THEIR TRUCK INO THE STREETS AND BEATING THEM HALF TO DEATH? Oranthal’s arrogance lead him to believe because he got buy with murdering two innocent young people he could take his hoodlum, skum bag friends to the hotel and steal his memorabilia that had been “bought and paid fo”r by a white man’s hard earned money. Yale Gallanter avised OJ not to go to the hotel..But if he chose to , make sure there were no GUNS INVOLVED. and what did the ignorant SOB do? knowing and allowed hoodlums to take guns so he could ask the guy politely and not scare him, “please, give me my memorbila back.” It was a travesty of justice when OJ was acquitted of killing Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman and it would be a second travesty if this man geta an APPEAL. @AL FISHER..Good question. What devils. I know who the devil (s) are he is speaking of. HIMSELF AND PEOPLE LIKE HIM.

    • OJ IS DOWN FOR THE COUNT ON THIS ONE THANK GOD AND LUCKY HE ONLY GOT 33 YEARS ON THE LAS VEGAS CHARGE SO CHANCE’S THAT HE GETS AN EARLY RELEASE ARE VERY SLIM HIS OWN DEVILS PUT HIM IN THAT JAIL CELL AND LOOKS LIKE THEY WILL ALSO KEEP HIM THEIR …………………………….

    OJ does not deserve a get out of jail free card since he was stupid enuff to allow himself to get caught up attempting to recover some old memorabilia.

    When he was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife and her friend he should have laid low and kept his nose clean instead of continuing to flaunt himself surrounded by white women.

    OJ is not in jail now because of theft–HE IS IN JAIL BECAUSE OF THAT SAME MURDER!!!!!!

    He is never gonna win in a white mans court. He should have just stuck with his own people. Now the white man has all his money and his freedom. I can’t wait till we can turn the tables on those devils.
