O.J. Simpson and his mother on Tuesday won the tug-of-war with creditors over a $20,000 grand piano, with a judge ruling it belonged to Eunice Simpson and should be returned to her.
Superior Court Judge David Perez ordered that the piano, which had been seized by Simpson's creditors from his Brentwood estate, be returned to her. She said she would have it taken to Simpson's new home in Pacific Palisades.
The hearing was held to determine whether Simpson's creditors had a right to auction off the piano, along with other possessions seized from him, to help satisfy a $33.5 million wrongful-death judgment against him.
Mrs. Simpson testified Tuesday that the grand piano was a gift from Simpson and his then-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, in 1984, and she considered it her property although it remained at her son's home.
