Simpson Forced To Drop Kentucky Restaurant Action.

O.J. SIMPSON has been forced to drop a lawsuit against a restaurant owner who threw him out because he disapproved of his conduct following the 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her companion Ron Goldman. Restaurant boss Jeff Ruby asked the American football legend to leave Joe Ruby's Steakhouse in Louisville, Kentucky earlier this month (May07). This week (begs07May07), Simpson's attorney Yale Galanter said he believed his client's eviction was racially motivated. However, during an interview on The Big Show With Steve Mason & John Ireland on ESPN Radio last Thursday (10May07) night, Ruby said, "I got a phone call from the Goldman lawyers, and he's not going to be able to do this lawsuit anyway, because they've already taken preemptive action in case there is a claim." In 1995, Simpson was acquitted of the murders of his former wife and Goldman. In 1997, he was found liable for their deaths in a civil court - he still owes the majority of the $33.5 million (£16.75 million) he was ordered to pay.
