Bank Foreclosing On O.J. Simpson’s Kendall Home

MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – JPMorgan Chase is moving forward with foreclosure proceedings on the Kendall home of O.J. Simpson.

Simpson, who is serving time in Nevada for kidnapping and armed robbery, bought the four-bedroom, four-bath house in 2000 for $575,000. Its current assessed value is $478,401.

The 64-year-old former football star and actor is serving a nine-to-33-year prison sentence in a 2007 armed confrontation with sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas casino hotel room.

Miami-Dade Circuit Court records show that JPMorgan Chase filed for foreclosure in September.  Simpson’s attorneys have since filed a motion to dismiss the case.

Simpson was acquitted in 1995 in the Los Angeles slayings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.
