O.J. Simpson civil judgment to be auctioned online


NEW YORK — After waiting 17 years for O.J. Simpson to pay a $9 million wrongful death judgment, Ronald Goldman’s mother is selling her right to the cash online.

Sharon Rufo listed the judgment Tuesday on JudgmentMarketplace.com. Bidding continues for 30 days, but it can be bought right away for $1 million.

Website founder Shawn Porat says Simpson’s judgment is worth $24.7 million after interest is factored in. That’s only if Simpson pays.

The winning bidder takes on the risk of collecting from the financially strapped ex-football star. He’s been in a Nevada prison since 2008 on a robbery and kidnapping conviction.

Simpson has paid little of the $33.5 million he owes from the 1997 civil case. A jury acquitted him in 1995 of killing Goldman and ex-wife Nicole Brown.
