*On Friday (04-12-24), O.J. Simpson’s longtime lawyer and executor of his estate, Malcolm LaVergne, announced his intention to contest the $33.5 million judgment awarded to the families of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.

LaVergne, who has represented Simpson since 2009, made clear his stance in a phone interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, stating:

“It’s my hope that the Goldmans get zero, nothing,” LaVergne said. “Them specifically. And I will do everything in my capacity as the executor or personal representative to try and ensure that they get nothing.”

Simpson’s final will, revealed in court documents filed Friday, designates LaVergne as the executor responsible for managing the estate. Simpson passed away from prostate cancer, with his family announcing his death a day later.

After achieving fame as a football star, Simpson became embroiled in the highly publicized trial for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in June 1994, ultimately acquitted.

According to LaVergne, Simpson had battled prostate cancer for several years, with the illness resurging recently. He died in hospice care at his residence in Rhodes Ranch, Las Vegas Valley.

The will places all of Simpson’s belongings into a trust established in January, with LaVergne stating that the total value of the estate has yet to be determined.

LaVergne expressed surprise at being named the estate’s executor, acknowledging the responsibility with seriousness.

“I am flummoxed as to why he would name me as the personal representative or the executor, but he did,” he said. “And it’s something I’m going to take very seriously.”

Among LaVergne’s duties is to finance a suitable monument at Simpson’s gravesite, as stipulated in the will. The document also emphasizes Simpson’s desire for the will to be executed without any disputes or litigation.

Simpson was found liable in a civil wrongful death lawsuit in 1997, though LaVergne notes there was never a court order mandating payment of the civil judgment.

LaVergne’s animosity towards the Goldman family stems in part from their acquisition of Simpson’s controversial book manuscript, originally titled ‘If I Did It,’ which they retitled ‘If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer.’

Simpson’s financial situation was reportedly constrained after losing valuable possessions to satisfy the civil judgment, including auctioning his Heisman Trophy.

Subsequently, Simpson faced legal troubles in Las Vegas, resulting in a conviction for a 2007 robbery and serving a prison sentence.

Released in 2017, Simpson was granted early discharge from parole in 2021.

LaVergne disclosed plans for Simpson’s cremation in the coming days, pending finalization of funeral arrangements.
