OJ Simpson's controversial book, If I Did It, could be repackaged and sold by the family of Ron Goldman, according to court papers.
The former US football star was to release the book last year but it was withdrawn by its publisher 10 days before its launch.
In the book Simpson hypothetically places himself at the scene of the murders of his wife, Nicole Brown, and her friend, Goldman, in 1994.
Next week, Goldman's father, Fred, will ask a federal bankruptcy court judge in Miami, Florida, to ratify a deal that will give him the rights to the memoirs and he plans to repackage the book for a new publisher.
"This is the first opportunity we have had to take an asset from the killer," he said.
Goldman wants sales from the book to pay some of the R258million that Simpson owes Goldman after a wrongful death ruling was passed against him in 1997.
But, lawyers for Nicole Brown's estate aim to fight the agreement giving Goldman the rights to the book, arguing that the two families should share them. - Wenn
