Re: WOW...Who's Buying OJ's Book?...Who Thinks Fox Is Right?...
LOS ANGELES | An attorney for Nicole Brown Simpsonís family on Thursday accused eBay of not moving fast enough to yank auctions of If I Did It, O.J. Simpsonís hypothetical story of how he would have killed his ex-wife.
The book had been set for release Nov. 30 after a two-part Simpson interview on Fox, but News Corp., owner of Fox Broadcasting and publisher HarperCollins, canceled the project after an outcry.
Responding to concerns from HarperCollins, eBay spokesman Hani Durzy said Wednesday the online auction house had been removing offers to sell purported copies of the book from the site. In one case, bids had topped $1 million.
Brown family attorney Natasha Roit said the siteís deadline-style auctions meant some transactions could finish before eBay acted. HarperCollins has said all copies of the book would be destroyed.
Simpson, 59, was acquitted of the double murder of his ex-wife and her friend Ron Goldman in 1995. He was found liable in a wrongful-death lawsuit filed by Goldmanís family. Simpson has not paid the $33.5 million civil judgment. His NFL pension and Florida home cannot be seized.
