O.J. Simpson's final will was filed in Clark County, NV on Friday after his recent passing due to cancer. The will named his longtime Las Vegas attorney, Malcolm LaVergne, as the 'personal representative' and executor, with Simpson's son, Justin Simpson, named as the 'successor personal representative.'

The will, signed by Simpson on January 25, 2024, placed his property into The Orenthal Simpson Revocable Living Trust, as per court documents filed by the Cassady Law Offices.

LaVergne, who had been Simpson's attorney for 15 years, revealed that Simpson had been in hospice care for two weeks before his death. Simpson had battled prostate cancer, which had recently returned despite having been successfully treated previously.

Addressing the $33.5 million civil judgment from 1997 awarded to the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, LaVergne referred to it as 'just creditors' claims.' He emphasized that these families, considered 'publicity creditors,' would need to file their claims alongside other creditors, including the IRS, as Simpson had substantial debt.

LaVergne expressed his intention to contest any payout from the estate to the Goldman family, stating his hope that they receive nothing. He asserted his commitment to ensuring that the Goldmans do not receive any portion of the estate.
