The estates of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman both seek the rights to O.J. Simpson’s book, If I Did It.
The book, which has not been published, describes how the killings of O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife and her friend Goldman might have been carried out. O.J. Simpson was acquitted of the crime but held liable for $33.5 million in a civil lawsuit.
The Nicole Brown Simpson estate is seeking a court order to allow it to use part of the civil judgment to bid on the book at a sheriff’s auction on Tuesday, the Los Angeles Times reports.
But the Goldman estate has already won a court order giving it rights to the book.
