LAS VEGAS (AP) - O.J. Simpson's lawyer told a panel of Nevada Supreme Court justices Friday that the former football star's conviction in a gunpoint hotel room heist amounted to prejudicial "payback" for Simpson's 1994 double-murder acquittal. "This was not a search for truth but became a search for redemption," attorney Yale Galanter said as he pleaded for the court panel to overturn Simpson's conviction and grant a new trial in the September 2007 confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers in Las Vegas.
Questions from Justices Mark Gibbons, Michael Cherry and Nancy Saitta focused on the racial makeup of the jury and the conduct of the trial judge, who Galanter accused of preventing him from presenting the jury with Simpson's theory of defense. A ruling by the court is not expected until later this year.

OJ ? Wahts an OJ ?
I imagine OJ wants to be released so he can go looking for the “real” memorabilia thieves.
Did he get his memorabilia back?
Galanter’s been whistling that same tune for a long time. IIRC, after the sentencing, the legal analysts were pretty unanimous that this sort of BS wouldn’t cut it during an appeal.
Yeah, he did so well looking for his murdered wife's killer!
I actually think he might be right. By the way, I think OJ is a piece of arrogant murdering scum. But, I can almost understand him trying to get his stolen stuff back. The sentence seems excessive--for this crime.
Too bad for OJ... sometimes what goes around comes around. He still got away with murder.
