O.J. Simpson has his fake Rolex back.
The watch was seized earlier this week by attorneys for Fred Goldman, but was returned to Simpson after it was determined to be
a knockoff made in China.
Goldman's lawyers had hoped the watch might be worth as much as
$22,000, but an appraisal from a San Francisco jeweler concluded it
was worth only about 100 bucks.
Simpson was acquitted in a criminal trial of the 1994 murders of Goldman's son, Ron Goldman, and Simpson's ex-wife Nicole Brown
After their families sued him for wrongful death, a civil court jury found him liable for the killings and ordered that he pay $33.5 million.
Most of that judgment remains unpaid, although Fred Goldman recently won the rights to Simpson's book, "If I Did It."
The ghostwritten account of how Simpson could have committed the
murders is a New York Times best-seller.
