OJ gets the boot
The Washington Post ^ | May 9, 2007 | BETH CAMPBELL

Posted on 05/09/2007 3:51:23 AM PDT by KentuckianaHeadhunter

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The owner of an upscale steakhouse in Louisville said he asked O.J. Simpson to leave his restaurant the night before the Kentucky Derby because he is sickened by the attention Simpson still attracts.

"I didn't want to serve him because of my convictions of what he's done to those families," Jeff Ruby said in a telephone interview Tuesday. "The way he continues to torture the lives of those families ... with his behavior, attitude and conduct."

Now OJ's lawyer is saying it was racism and is going after Ruby's liquor license.

Ol’ OJ is really racking up the good deeds while on earth isn’t he?

Unless Ted Kennedy was there at the same time, I don’t think he’s got much of a “racism” case!

Seems simple to prove in court that either a black man or a white man "....continues to torture the lives of those families ... with his behavior, attitude and conduct....",p> Racism? Going after the man's liquor license?

I agree with Michael Savage. A day will come when the general population is going to rise up against lawyers; the left educated elite.

Bravo.

There are still some people with character and backbone left after all.

I would say that race has something to do with this because if OJ was white, he would not have been acquitted and he’d be sitting in prison right now in which case this incident would never have happened in the first place.

I was at the Derby, and saw OJ at Cevechi on Bardstown rd. at around 9 o;clock Sat. night. A friend in our group took her picture with him. The sight of OJ totally creeped me out.

I was at the Derby this year as well, and really wish I had seen O.J.

At minimum, I would have inquired if he was there in his search for the “real killers”.

I will patronize this guy’s restaurant in the future. We end up doing a family dinner in Louisville every year or two; my BIL is up there.

Beckwith,

It was kinda funny actually...when she said she was going to do it no one believed her. I told her to ask him to try on one of her gloves. The OJ jokes went on for hours.

BTW, If you saw/met my friend “creepy” would be the last word you would use to describe her. She is very funny, and extremely attractive!

I would probably have served him after I burned his steak to a crisp and spit in his potato’s and gravy.

I cant imagine anyone wanting to have their picture taken with a killer,but the world is filled with strange people.

The lawyer may find that the Louisville liquor board isnt filled with OJ jurists. At least I hope it isnt.

Bono,

This story puzzles me...I never saw anyone ask him to leave, and Ceviche is not a steak house. The freakiest part about the whole thing was that the woman to his left, that we assumed was his date had a striking resemblance to Nicole Brown.

This is the restaurant OJ was at after the Derby.

www.sevicherestaurant.com

It is not a steak house, and no one asked him to leave.

Huh?

The story is about OJ getting thrown out of a steakhouse the night BEFORE the Derby.

This story purports to tell what happened the day before that. Presumably even OJ wouldn’t try to get thrown out of the same restaurant two days in a row!

You can tell a lot about a person by how they would respond to seeing OJ Simpson in public.

OJ seems to like Blonde women with big hooters.

The Blonde women seem to like the danger of dating a man who may have murdered a look-alike.

My problem is where does OJ get the money to go to the Derby and spend on Blondes when he hasnt paid a dime of his civil suit. I have read that they cant garnish his retirement pay from the NFL. I dont understand that either,since if I lost a suit they would garnish my retirement pay soon enough.

OJ’s attorney seems a rather mouthy person for someone who would have a slime like OJ for a client. How low can an attorney go. Wait: Dont answer that. There is no bottom for attorney’s.

OJ's not getting enough credit here. Nichole's killer must have dined there recently and OJ was hot on his trail tracking him down, as he promised he would do after he was aquitted.

It doesn’t surprise me Jeff Ruby threw him out of his establishment.

"He screwed with the wrong guy, he really did," Galanter said by telephone Tuesday night.

Galanter is slime. He is the typical frat puke hiding behind his 'brothers' and talking smack.

Nah...I know that my friend is far from creepy, however some people live in glass houses.

She took her picture with a dozen famous people that day. Just because she took her picture with OJ doesn't mean she likes him. We talked for hours about how we should have kicked his ass.

After a full day at the track, drinking Mint Juleps, and Cadillac Margaritas at dinner, taking her picture with OJ was far from the craziest thing we did that night:)<

Simpson's attorney, Yale Galanter, said the incident was about race,

Give me a break. Simpson is a cold-blooded murderer and the restaurant owner doesn't want murderers in there.

I didn’t suggest your friend was creepy. Her behavior is creepy.

What’s creepy is women’s fascination with this double murderer.

And — most of the ones that throw themselves at this POS are quite attractive. Your friend just meets the profile.
