Simpson’s will leaves Goldman family uncompensated

Simpson's Uncompensated Will

Orenthal James (O.J.) Simpson left no financial allocation for the Goldman family in his final testament, continuing a legal battle with them that began in 1997. Instead, he appointed his child as his estate’s manager and sole heir, leaving the Goldmans with nothing.

Simpson’s attorney, Malcolm LaVergne, strongly believes the Goldman family should receive no financial compensation from the estate. His intent for the family’s inheritance is clear: they should get “zero, nothing.

The O. J. Simpson Revocable Living Trust suggests the estate should be administered without contention. If beneficiaries disagree with the provisions, they forfeit their rights to the estate for a measly one dollar.

Simpson’s will snub the Goldman family.

This rule prevents any potential litigation and protects the estate’s future benefits.

Fred Goldman, whose son was murdered along with Simpson’s ex-wife in 1994, is distraught by Simpson’s apparent lack of guilt. According to Goldman, Simpson never intended to share his wealth, leaving the 1997 compensatory court order unpaid.

Simpson was acquitted of murder in 1995 but was found liable in 1997. This resulted in a court-ordered repayment of $33.5 million to the Brown and Goldman families. However, the unpaid sum has surged over the years to around $110 million due to interest. Regrettably, only a fraction, $133,000, has been received by the Goldmans from Simpson.

The news of Simpson’s passing on April 10th shocked many. His family announced he died of prostate cancer, surrounded by his loved ones. They requested solitude during their mourning period.
