(Newser) – The skeletons are back in the closet for OJ Simpson today after a judge said a lawyer for the Goldman family—who won a civil verdict against the former football star in the slaying of their son—can't testify in Simpson’s current armed-robbery trial, AP reports. The prosecution argued it would help establish motive in the alleged incident with Las Vegas memorabilia dealers; the defense feared David Cook would prejudice jurors.
