LAS VEGAS (AP) _ O-J Simpson’s chance for a new trial now lies with the Nevada Supreme Court. His lawyers have filed papers with the court, claiming a lower court judge was wrong not to give the former N-F-L star another chance in front of a judge and jury. Simpson has argued that his trial lawyer, Yale Galanter, botched the case and had a conflict of interest. Simpson was convicted in 2008 of kidnapping and armed robbery — charges that came as a result of a hotel room robbery to get back memorabilia Simpson claimed belonged to him. Simpson is 67 — and won’t be eligible for parole until 2017.
