Lawyer Seeks Court Authorization to Auction OJ Simpson’s Personal Belongings

Lawyer Malcolm LaVergne has filed a court request seeking authorization to auction off the personal belongings of the late OJ Simpson, according to a court filing reported by Fox 5 Las Vegas. LaVergne aims to waive the usual requirement for court confirmation in order to maximize the estate’s value for creditors and interested parties. The attorney believes that certain items of personal property, given the unique circumstances surrounding the estate, may hold greater value than in a typical probate administration.

Among the items potentially up for auction are Simpson’s Heisman Trophy, golf clubs, car, and driver’s license. However, the authenticity of the Heisman Trophy remains unclear. The lawyer highlights that the deceased football star possessed personal property items that were unique to him and could attract significant public interest for purchase.

To proceed with the auction, the request must be approved by a judge. As of now, no hearing date has been scheduled.

OJ Simpson, aged 76, passed away in April after a battle with cancer, which had been largely kept private by his family. Simpson gained worldwide attention when he was famously acquitted of the 1994 killing of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman. However, he was found liable for their deaths in a subsequent civil trial and ordered to pay $33.5 million to the Brown and Goldman families.
