LAS VEGAS (AP) - O.J. Simpson is asking the Nevada Supreme Court
to let him out of prison while it decides whether to overturn his conviction in an armed hotel room heist.
A clerk says a motion was filed Monday with the state's only appellate court seeking unspecified bail for the former football star and television celebrity.
No date was immediately set for a court ruling.
The 61-year-old Simpson is serving nine to 33 years for kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon in the gunpoint robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers in September 2007.
The court also ruled Friday that Simpson and co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart each have to file appendices to their separate appeals.
Stewart is serving 7½ to 27 years for his conviction in the case.
