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.

Here's one thing that can be said with certainty about Keith Adcox, Steven Ainsworth, Rodney Alcala, Clarence Allen, Watson Allison, Jesse Andrews and Tony Ashumus. They weren't much as football players. And that's too bad for them. Manuel Babbit never pitched rental cars. Anthony Bean never appeared in a "Naked Gun" movie. Donald Beardslee, Ronald Lee Bell, Fernando Belmontes, Richard Benson, Rodney Berryman, Lawrence Bittaker and Maurice Bloom Jr.

A yellow Ryder truck, bearing almost half a million contested presidential ballots and hugging the speed limit, swept across the length of Florida on Thursday, tracked by television cameras, unmarked police cars, political operatives and a nationwide audience.

DirecTV said "the evidence was overwhelming" against O.J. Simpson. But the ex-football star's lawyer said he did nothing wrong. The satellite TV giant on Tuesday was referring to its civil court victory in which a Florida judge ordered Simpson to pay $25,000 for allegedly stealing its signals. The case stems from the recovery in 2001 of two "bootloaders" in Simpson's home that allowed viewers to tap into DirecTV signals without paying for them.
