SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - A California judge has ordered O.J. Simpson's former manager to keep the former football star's so-called acquittal suit in storage until it is determined who rightfully owns it.

Santa Monica Superior Court Judge Gerald Rosenberg heard Monday from a lawyer for Fred Goldman, who is seeking to sell the suit Simpson wore to court when he was acquitted on murder charges.

Fred Goldman is the father of Ronald Goldman, who was slain alongside Simpson's ex-wife 15 years ago.

He is trying to recover a civil judgment against Simpson.

The judge also heard from Mike Gilbert, the manager who said Simpson gave him the suit the day after his Oct. 3, 1995, acquittal on murder charges.

Gilbert claims it is his property because Simpson had not yet been found civilly liable for the two deaths.
