Fred Goldman, father of one of the victims in a 1994 slaying of which OJ Simpson was accused, acquitted, and later found liable in civil court, has been given the rights to Simpson's book on the killings, pulled from shelves last year [SN reported].
Goldman plans to publish the book, changing the title from "If I Did It," to "Confessions of a Double Murderer." He was given the rights by a Miami bankruptcy judge on June 15th as part of the $33.5 million settlement from that civil suit.
If not published, Simpson could regain rights to the book. It was to be published by ReganBooks and News Corp and made into a two-part TV special. Amidst a backlash of criticism, News Corp cancelled it, fired publisher Judith Regan, and apologized.
