O.J. Simpson's lawyers still seek appeal
LAS VEGAS -- O.J. Simpson's lawyers are asking a Nevada Supreme Court panel to reconsider their appeal of Simpson's Las Vegas armed robbery and kidnapping conviction.
A clerk with the state high court said the request for a rehearing was received Tuesday.
Simpson attorney Yale Galanter tells The Associated Press the three-judge panel overlooked or misunderstood several arguments -- including that Simpson lacked the necessary intent for conviction.
Galanter argues Simpson thought he was retrieving personal items when he and other men confronted two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas casino hotel room in September 2008.
A jury convicted Simpson and co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart last year.
The justices rejected Simpson's appeal last month, but granted Stewart a new trial.
Simpson is serving nine to 33 years in state prison.
