Judge denies O.J. Simpson’s motion to dismiss foreclosure case
Acquitted murderer, convicted felon, former actor, former sportscaster and former All-Star football player O.J. Simpson is one step closer to losing his south Florida home to foreclosure.
Attorneys for the imprisoned Simpson appeared before Miami-Dade County Circuit Court Judge Gisela Cardonne Ely last week on a contested motion to dismiss. In denying relief, the court ruled that JP Morgan Chase may proceed with plans to retake the home.
In September, a JP Morgan Chase process server attempted to serve foreclosure papers at the Miami home of Simpson, located at 9450 SW 112 Street, Miami, Fla. 33176. At that time, the process server advised the court that Simpson could not be located for personal service of process.
Having been convicted in 2008 of kidnapping and armed robbery, Simpson is currently serving a 33-year prison sentence at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada. He is not eligible for parole until 2017.
