O.J. Simpson

Friend to testify in court about O.J. Simpson's finances

One of O.J. Simpson's friends is being ordered to testify about the former football star's finances. The order to appear in court was issued yesterday at the request of Fred Goldman, whose son Ron Goldman was stabbed to death along with Nicole Brown Simpson. Simpson was acquitted of double murder but was hit with a 33-and-a-half million-dollar civil verdict that remains unpaid to the victims' families. Goldman's attorney wrote that Alfred Beardsley "has knowledge" of Simpson's "financial condition" and other property. Simpson has said he feels no obligation to pay because he did not commit the murders.
