The Nevada Supreme Court has rejected O.J. Simpson’s request to rehear his case in the 2007 robbery of items from sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room.  In a one sentence decision, the high court simply said, quote, “rehearing denied.”  Defense attorneys claimed there were a number of errors made during the original trial, including the dismissal of two potential African-American witnesses and a lack of evidence for Simpson’s kidnaping conviction.  The 64-year-old Simpson was convicted on 11 counts and is spending a nine to 33-year sentence at the Lovelock Correctional Center.   The high court had overturned the conviction of Simpson’s co-defendant, Clarence Stewart.  He was placed on three years probation and nine months of home detention as part of a plea agreement.
