The new effort alleges that Galanter’s conflict of interest skewed his representation of Simpson in a trial also tainted by the sports, television and movie star’s notoriety stemming from his acquittal in the June 1994 slayings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman in Los Angeles.

The 20th anniversary of the slayings is next week. Simpson, now 66, is serving nine to 33 years at a Nevada state prison in Lovelock in the Las Vegas robbery case. He’s not eligible for parole until late 2017.

On Wednesday, Galanter defended his performance on Simpson’s behalf.

The Miami-based lawyer pointed to Clark County District Court Judge Linda Marie Bell’s ruling in November — after five days of hearings last May and several months reviewing the case record — that Simpson failed to demonstrate how Galanter’s actions led to Simpson’s conviction.

Bell denied Simpson’s request for release and a new trial. She said also that evidence was overwhelming that Simpson orchestrated the September 2007 armed kidnapping and robbery at the Palace Station hotel.

“Judge Bell saw through his and his lawyers’ charade and kicked him to the curb,” Galanter said.

Simpson continues to say he was trying to retrieve items that had been stolen from him after a 1997 civil case put him on the hook for a $33.5 million wrongful-death judgment.

He testified last year that he thought he had a right to get his belongings back, and that he never knew any of the men with him were carrying guns.

The NFL Hall of Famer didn’t testify at trial in Las Vegas. He told Bell that Galanter advised him not to.

    @@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.
