Dealer Objects To Auction Of OJ Simpson Items

A memorabilia dealer O.J. Simpson was convicted of robbing at a Las Vegas hotel is trying to stop a public auction of footballs, jerseys and other items seized by authorities after the stickup.

Los Angeles County sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said Thursday his department began the auction process by notifying Simpson about the sale.

But Whitmore says Bruce Fromong, one of two memorabilia dealers who were robbed in 2007, has claimed ownership of the collectibles.

An attorney for Fred Goldman wants to proceed with the sale.

He says proceeds from the auction will help satisfy a wrongful death
judgment the families of slaying victims Ronald Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson won against Simpson in 1995.
