I could have entitled this entry “Maybe he was watching for the real killers.” O.J. is back in the news:
A U.S. District Judge in the Southern District of Florida has ordered O.J. Simpson to pay DIRECTV $25,000 in damages, plus attorneys’ fees and cost for stealing DIRECTV® programming.
Judge Joan A. Lenard awarded damages in the signal theft case after granting DIRECTV’s motion for summary judgment in a civil lawsuit filed by DIRECTV against Simpson following a raid on his Miami home and the seizure of two illegal devices, known as bootloaders, in December 2001. The devices were being used to intercept DIRECTV programming without the company’s authorization.
Simpson, who did not have a legitimate DIRECTV account, admitted that the two devices were installed at his residence and that they were specifically designed to steal DIRECTV programming.
