Kim says there's another important reason why the Goldman family felt they had to get the rights and publish If I Did It. If they didn't, O.J. Simpson could have possibly, at some point, reestablished ownership of the manuscript and then gone through with his plan to publish it.
"Had we not pursued what we did to stop him from profiting, he would have gotten that book and gone off and published it again," Kim says.
Although she feels no closure after her brother's murder, Kim says fighting to own the rights to Simpson's book is her family's way of fighting back. "He spent hours putting together this 'confession' about how he killed Ron and Nicole and he worked hard, thinking he was going to make millions off of it. And we snatched it right out from under him," she says. "After 11 years, this is our first victory."
