A Los Angeles legal newspaper, the Daily Journal, claims O.J. Simpson will appeal last year's civil-case decision against him. Simpson, who was cleared by a criminal jury, lost the wrongful death suit in civil court for the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. Simpson, says the Journal, will attempt to have the $33 million judgment against him overturned, or at least reduced. His lawyers filed their papers Thursday, saying the jury acted out of malice and prejudice. Fred Goldman, father of Ron, said he will fight any such move.
