Goldman family buys rights to O.J. book

MIAMI (AP) -- Legal wrangling continues to surround O-J Simpson.

The family of Ron Goldman has acquired the rights to Simpson's canceled book, "If I Did It," from a court-appointed bankruptcy trustee. The settlement was reached Monday.

Goldman was slain along with Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, in 1994. The former football star has maintained his innocence. He was acquitted of murder, but Goldman's family won a civil wrongful death case against him now totaling more than 33 (m) million dollars.

According to court documents, the Goldmans own the copyright, media rights and movie rights. They also acquired Simpson's name, likeness, life story and right of publicity in connection with the book. The Goldmans want to rename the book "Confessions of a Double Murderer" and plan to shop it around.
