LAS VEGAS (AP) - O.J. Simpson's lawyer wants the Nevada Supreme
Court to order the Las Vegas district attorney's office off the
former football star's bid for release from state prison.
Appeals lawyer Patricia Palm filed an appeal this week asking
the high court to overrule a state court judge's decision earlier
this month in Las Vegas.
That judge ruled Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson
wouldn't benefit from the outcome of a claim that Simpson's lawyers
did a bad job at trial in 2008.
Palm argues that because Wolfson is married to the judge who
handled Simpson's trial, Wolfson has a financial and emotional
interest in the outcome.
Wolfson was named DA this year.
His wife, former Judge Jackie Glass, resigned after the Simpson
trial to star in a syndicated court TV show.
