A bankruptcy filing has delayed an auction for the rights to O.J. Simpson’s book If I Did It, the Sacramento Bee (registration required) reports.
Heirs of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman both sought rights to the book. O.J. Simpson was acquitted of the murders of Goldman and his ex-wife but was held liable for $33.5 million in a civil judgment.
The company that owns the yet-to-be-published book, Lorrain Brooke Associates, filed for bankruptcy in federal court. The book describes how the killings of Simpson and Goldman might have been carried out.
