It’s Not Over! Fred Goldman To Take OJ Simpson To Nevada Court For $70 Million

In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Fred Goldman’s attorney said he is not going to give up trying to collect about $70 million dollars that OJ Simpson owes the bereaved family — and he plans to take the disgraced former athlete to a Nevada court!

Cook appeared before a judge at the Santa Monica courthouse Tuesday morning, and asked the judge to order Simpson to turn over any money the former Heisman Trophy winner has or may have made from memorabilia signings.

Cook said that judgment has ballooned to about $70 million because of interest. Under the motion, Goldman asked for a court order that would turn over the rights from any revenue Simpson has and could make from any autograph or memorabilia signing, promotion, or other commercial enterprises.

When asked how the Goldmans are dealing with the lengthy legal battle, Cook told Radar that the family will never find closure.

“For anybody here, be it any person who has lost their child, whether to not the wrongdoer was acquitted, it is still consuming,” Cook told Radar. “Anybody who says it’s not consuming is not from this planet. They live with the loss … and anyone who sees their children die before they do, the loss of a child can be very consuming. Fred rejects, as many people do, what’s called ‘closure.’"

“Closure for anybody for anybody who has lost a child is an obscene word."
