is the father of Ron Goldman, who was murdered with Simpson's ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson in 1994.
O.J. Simpson was acquitted of their murders, but the Goldman family won a multimillion-dollar civil wrongful death judgment against Simpson, most of it still unpaid.
Attorneys for Goldman believe Simpson gave his NFL the ring to one of the memorabilia dealers he was convicted of robbing at a Las Vegas hotel.
