(Reuters) - Lawyers for O.J. Simpson submitted a bulky document requesting a new trial for the former NFL star in an attempt to have his 2008 armed-robbery conviction overturned, court officials said on Thursday.

The attorneys for Simpson, who is not eligible for parole until 2017, filed the opening brief in his December 2013 appeal before a midnight-Wednesday deadline, said Nevada Supreme Court spokesman Michael Sommermeyer.

The document came in at 19,993 words, well over the 14,000 word limit, along with a request to exceed the word count because of the complexity of the case.

Before the brief can be made public, the court will have to accept Simpson's request to go over the limit, Sommermeyer said.

He doesn't have to run through airports anymore.

Now he just has to run as fast as he can in and back out of the showers!

OJ wants more justice, can you blame him after being railroaded for murder? We all know that judges never take bribes, they never support injustice, and they are never racist in their decisions. Just look at the success of pervert marriage.
