LAS VEGAS (AP) - A decision about whether O.J. Simpson will get a new trial is still in the works.

That's the word Thursday from a Nevada state court judge approaching the five-month anniversary of hearings she held in May about whether the former football star was so badly represented by his lawyers at trial that he deserves a retrial.

Clark County District Court spokeswoman Mary Ann Price issued a short statement saying Judge Linda Marie Bell hasn't set a date for her ruling.

The statement says the case is complicated, the file is thick, and the judge is addressing 22 claims raised by prosecutors and Simpson lawyers.

Simpson is serving nine to 33 years for armed robbery and kidnapping in a botched attempt to retrieve personal items from sports memorabilia dealers in 2007.
