SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - A judge has ordered a former friend of O.J. Simpson to turn over Simpson's Pro Football Hall of Fame ring to help satisfy a $33.5 million civil court judgment in a wrongful death lawsuit.
Superior Court Judge Gerald Rosenberg on Friday ordered memorabilia dealer Alfred Beardsley to turn over the ring in a week.
Beardsley is one of the victims in the Las Vegas armed robbery that landed Simpson in prison. He denies that he has the ring.
The ring is being demanded by Fred Goldman, whose son, Ron Goldman, was stabbed to death along with Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole
Simpson was acquitted in criminal court in 1995 but lost the civil case in 1997.
