LAS VEGAS (AP) - A new lawyer for O.J. Simpson is making another
effort to gain the former football star's release from Nevada state
prison, where he is serving nine to 33 years for kidnapping and
armed robbery in a 2007 encounter with sports memorabilia dealers
in Las Vegas.

A 94-page document filed Tuesday in Clark County District Court
in Las Vegas alleges Simpson was so badly represented by his trial
and prior appellate lawyers that he deserves a new trial.

Almost all of the 22 grounds attorney Patricial Palm cites fault
the trial strategy and performance of attorneys Yale Galanter of
Miami and Gabriel Grasso of Las Vegas.

Galanter declined immediate comment until he sees the filing.

Grasso did not immediately respond to messages.
