Unpaid O.J. Simpson civil judgment to be auctioned

NEW YORK — After waiting 17 years for O.J. Simpson to pay a $9 million wrongful death judgment, Ronald Goldman’s mother is selling her right to the cash online.

Sharon Rufo listed the judgment Tuesday on JudgmentMarketplace.com with a $1 million starting price. Bidding continues for 30 days.

Website founder Shawn Porat says the Simpson judgment is now worth $24.7 million after interest is factored in, but that’s only if Simpson pays.

The winning bidder takes on the risk of collecting from the financially strapped former football star. He’s been in a Nevada prison since 2008 on a robbery and kidnapping conviction.

Simpson has paid little of the $33.5 million he owes from the 1997 civil case. A jury acquitted him in 1995 of killing Goldman and ex-wife Nicole Brown.
