Simpson fails to kill mini

L.A. judge allows CBS program to go on in fall

The public’s insatiable interest in the O.J. Simpson murder trial will be satisfied despite efforts by Simpson to stop the broadcast of a TV miniseries about the case.

On Wednesday, L.A. Superior Court Judge David Yaffe denied Simpson’s motion for a preliminary injunction because he did not prove that he would suffer irreparable harm from the program, which is scheduled to be shown on CBS in the fall. The judge based his decision, in part, on the fact that Simpson made no effort to stop the book on which it was based, which was published in 1996.

The bestselling book, “American Tragedy: The Uncensored Story of the Simpson Defense,” was written by Lawrence Schiller and based on interviews with Simpson’s former attorney Robert Kardashian, who gave a behind-the-scenes look at Simpson’s defense.

Simpson sued Schiller and Kardashian last month, claiming that the book and the miniseries contained protected attorney-client information.

Simpson was acquitted of the 1994 murders of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, but was subsequently found liable for the deaths in a civil wrongful death action and ordered to pay $33.5 million in damages.
