LAS VEGAS (AP) - The attorney who represented O.J. Simpson during his armed robbery trial in Las Vegas has begun testifying at a hearing in which the former football star is seeking a new trial.

Miami attorney Yale Galanter took the stand Friday, the fifth day of the hearing in which witnesses have raised questions about how well Galanter represented Simpson in the trial that led to a conviction and a sentence of nine to 33 years in prison.

Simpson has said Galanter advised him it was his legal right to retrieve personal items from two memorabilia dealers.

Galanter says when he heard that Simpson had a lead on the whereabouts of the items he told Simpson to call the police.
