Controversial OJ Simpson Book May Hit US Bookstores

A controversial book by O.J. Simpson may soon hit U.S. bookstores. A judge Tuesday March 13 ordered that rights to "If I Did It" be auctioned to help pay for a civil judgement against the former football star.

The ruling comes four months after media tycoon Rupert Murdoch dropped plans to release the book, in which Simpson speculates how he could have killed his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman.

While Simpson was acquitted of the 1994 killings, he was found guilty in a 1997 civil suit and ordered to pay $33.5 million in damages to the Brown and Goldman families.
