O.J. Simpson has asked a California court to dismiss a lawsuit seeking the publicity rights to his name, image and likeness to pay millions of dollars owed to relatives of his slain ex-wife and her friend.
Fred Goldman, whose son, Ron Goldman, was killed alongside Simpson's ex-wife Nicole in 1994, filed a petition last month in Santa Monica Superior Court seeking control of the publicity rights to Simpson's name and likeness.
Simpson was acquitted of the killings, but another jury found him liable in 1997 in a wrongful-death lawsuit filed by the victims' families.
Both sides agreed to a hearing on the matter on Tuesday, Simpson attorney Ronald P. Slates said Thursday.
In seeking the petition's dismissal, Simpson argued that he is not subject to matters in the California court because he lives in Florida.
