Court Gives O.J. Simpson's Lawyers a Week to Resubmit Appeal

Posted: Updated:
O.J. Simpson's lawyers have a week to reformat and resubmit a Nevada Supreme Court appeal for a new trial in the 2007 armed robbery case.
 
Chief Justice Mark Gibbons issued an order Friday that amounts to an agreement to accept a 20,000-word document that Simpson's lawyers submitted before a midnight May 21 deadline.
 
Court spokesman Michael Sommermeyer says the justices basically want it double-spaced and resubmitted by June 6.
 
Simpson's legal team is seeking the reversal of a lower court ruling.
 
It rejected arguments that Simpson got bad legal advice, that his lawyer had a conflict of interest and that Simpson's 2008 Las Vegas trial was tainted by his notoriety.
 
Simpson is 66 and is serving nine to 33 years in state prison.  (AP)
