O.J.’s executor says he wants Goldmans to get ‘zero, nothing’ from estate


Malcolm LaVergne, O.J. Simpson's longtime lawyer and executor of his estate, declared his intention to contest the payout of a $33.5 million judgment awarded to the families of Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman. LaVergne stated his opposition to the Goldman family receiving money from Simpson's estate. 

All of Simpson's property will go into a trust established in January, with the estate's total value yet to be determined. LaVergne's animosity towards the Goldman family partly stems from their acquisition and renaming of Simpson's controversial book manuscript, "If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer." Simpson's funeral arrangements are pending, with cremation expected in the coming days.
