Lawyers for the estate of Nicole Brown Simpson and the family of Ronald Goldman plan to ask a court to appoint a receiver to oversee the sale of O.J. Simpson's seized belongings, including his Heisman trophy and golf clubs.
An auction could be held as early as February to sell off assets seized last year after a civil jury found Simpson liable for damages in the stabbing deaths of his ex-wife and Goldman.
Simpson was ordered to pay $33.5 million to the plaintiffs. Proceeds from the auction will be split between Ms. Simpson's estate and Goldman's family, Gary Caris, a lawyer for the Goldman family, said Monday.
Caris' request for a receiver is scheduled to be heard Tuesday by a Los Angeles County judge. A lawyer for Simpson did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment Monday. But Caris said he had received no written objection from Simpson's lawyers over the motion.
Ms. Simpson and Goldman were killed June 12, 1994. Simpson was acquitted of murder charges in criminal court.
