O.J. Simpson Returns to Vegas Court in Bid for New Trial

LAS VEGAS (AP) " O.J. Simpson's former lawyer's work is expected to again draw withering criticism Tuesday in a Las Vegas courtroom where the imprisoned former football star and his new attorneys are trying to convince a Nevada judge that Simpson deserves a new trial. The 65-year-old Simpson arrived in court Monday in shackles and prison clothing " grayer and heavier than when he was hauled off to prison in 2008 to serve a minimum nine-year sentence. But he briefly flashed a smile for family members and friends in the second row. The focus on the first day of the five-day hearing was on promises and performance by Simpson's Miami-based lawyer Yale Galanter during the 2008 trial and conviction that got Simpson nine to 33 years in prison for armed robbery and kidnapping for a hotel room confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers.
