SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 18 (UPI) -- A California judge Tuesday gave the family of Ron Goldman a week to create a list of items O.J. Simpson is accused of stealing from a Las Vegas hotel room.

Superior Court Judge Gerald Rosenberg in Santa Monica, however, tentatively denied the family's request to take all of Simpson's earnings from endeavors such as autograph signings to video games to satisfy a portion of $33.5 million legal judgment awarded 11 years ago, the San Jose (Calif.) Mercury News reported.

Simpson was cleared in the 1994 slaying of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, in a criminal trial but later was held iable for the slayings in a wrongful death civil case.

David Cook, an attorney for Fred Goldman, Ron's father, filed a turnover request Tuesday morning.

During the hearing, Cook accused Simpson of "sitting on a treasure trove" of sports memorabilia while ignoring the judgment.

In Las Vegas, Simpson and three others face felony charges that include kidnapping and burglary in connection with last week's alleged theft of sports memorabilia from a hotel room in an off-Strip casino. Simpson said he was trying to recover the items he claimed were stolen by a former agent.
