OJ lawyers get Nevada Supreme Court oral argument

Published April 13, 2010

LAS VEGAS – A Nevada Supreme Court panel is scheduling oral arguments June 11 in Las Vegas on pending appeals by O.J. Simpson and a co-defendant convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges in a September 2007 hotel room heist.

A clerk for the state high court in Carson City says a panel of three justices will hear separate 30-minute oral appeals from lawyers for the NFL Hall of Famer and co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart.

The two men were tried together and convicted in 2008 of robbing two sports memorabilia dealers at gunpoint in Las Vegas of items Simpson claimed were his.

Both filed appeals in May 2009.

The 62-year-old Simpson is serving nine to 33 years in a Nevada prison. Stewart is serving 7 1/2 to 27 years.
