    O.J. Simpson's former manager has been ordered by a Los Angeles County judge to keep the former football star's so-called acquittal suit in storage until it is determined who rightfully owns it.

    Santa Monica Superior Court Judge Gerald Rosenberg heard Monday from a lawyer for Fred Goldman, who is seeking to sell the suit Simpson wore to court when he was acquitted on murder charges to satisfy a civil judgment against Simpson.

    Fred Goldman is the father of Ronald Goldman, who was slain alongside Simpson's ex-wife 15 years ago.

    The judge also heard from Mike Gilbert, the manager who said Simpson gave him the suit the day after his Oct. 3, 1995, acquittal on murder charges. Gilbert claims it is his property because at that point Simpson had not been found civilly liable for the two deaths.
