LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A new lawyer for O.J. Simpson is making another effort to gain the former football star's release from Nevada state prison, where he is serving nine to 33 years for kidnapping and armed robbery in a 2007 encounter with sports memorabilia dealers in Las Vegas.
A 94-page document filed Tuesday in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas alleges Simpson was so badly represented by his trial and prior appellate lawyers that he deserves a new trial.
Almost all of the 22 grounds attorney Patricial Palm cites fault the trial strategy and performance of attorneys Yale Galanter of Miami and Gabriel Grasso of Las Vegas.
Galanter declined immediate comment until he sees the filing.
Grasso did not immediately respond to messages.
