O.J. Simpson now owes Goldman family $96M

Fred Goldman has submitted new court documents rekindling the judgment from the civil trial.

During his storied NFL career, O.J. Simpson was adept at avoiding tackles.

Now, the former Buffalo Bills star must be hoping that his gridiron trickery holds in a court of law.

Simpson was accused of murdering his estranged wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, waiter Ronald Goldman, on June 12, 1994.

While he was acquitted in a criminal trial, the Juice was ordered in 1997 to pay a whopping $33.5 million to Goldman’s family and found liable in a civil suit for Ron’s slaying.

But according to Fred Goldman, that cash — with interest — has grown to an eye-popping $96 million, TMZ Sports reports.

The website said Goldman has submitted new court documents rekindling the judgment from the civil trial.

Fred Goldman noted that Simpson has only made a number of fairly small payments over the years. So little, in fact, that with interest the settlement has ballooned.

Even in 2015, Goldman claimed that Simpson owed him $57 million.

Goldman said that since Simpson was sprung from a Nevada prison in 2018 after serving time for armed robbery, he has gone back to making money and that cash should be going to the Goldman family.
