Calif. appeals court upholds renewal of $33.5M njudgment against O.J. Simpson

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A California appellate court is upholding the renewal of a 33.5 million dollar wrongful death judgment against O.J. Simpson.

Simpson was found liable in a 1997 civil case for the 1994 stabbing deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

The court is rejecting Simpson's argument that Los Angeles Superior Court no longer has jurisdiction over him because he moved to Florida. The attorney for Goldman's father says "a plane ticket to Miami" isn't -- quote -- "a free pass for a wrongful death judgment."

Goldman's father filed for a renewal in 2006 because Simpson refused to pay.
