OJ SIMP­SON SUES CASINO

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - WORLD -

OJ Simp­son is su­ing a Las Ve­gas ho­tel-casino that banned him in Novem­ber 2017, al­leg­ing that un­named em­ploy­ees de­famed him by telling a news site he had been drunk, dis­rup­tive and un­ruly.

Simp­son is on pa­role in Ne­vada for a 2008 con­vic­tion for armed rob­bery and as­sault with a weapon.

Simp­son at­tor­ney Malcolm LaVergne said his client’s rep­u­ta­tion was dam­aged by “ho­tel staff” ac­counts cited in a TMZ re­port that Simp­son “was drunk and be­came dis­rup­tive” at the re­sort’s Clique bar.

Simp­son was ac­quit­ted in Los An­ge­les in the 1994 slay­ings of his ex-wife, Ni­cole Brown Simp­son, and her friend, Ron­ald Gold­man.
