OJ Simpson Files New Appeal In Vegas Robbery Conviction

By KEN RITTER

 

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.
