(Las Vegas, NV)  —  A decision on a new trial for O.J. Simpson will be made in a few weeks.  District Judge Linda Bell promises a ruling as soon as possible.

During week-long testimony that ended Friday, Simpson claimed his former trial lawyer, Yale Galanter was ineffective.

Galanter says he couldn’t have “fought harder or done more” to defend his client.

The former football star is back in a Nevada prison, serving at least nine years for kidnaping and robbery at the Palace Station hotel in 2007.

Galanter testified the ex-football star knew guns were used in the 2007 robbery of sports memorabilia at Palace Station, and denied denied Simpson’s claim he would work for free on the case.

At one point, the cross-examination became so heated, Judge Linda Bell had to issue a warning.
