Geoff,if there is no trial for the police officer involved,the family will bring forth a civil trial.
He wouldn't have Simpsons wealth I would think.

Simpson Civil Trial Explainer

A primer on the case


O.J. Simpson faces another trial in the 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. This time it's not his freedom but his bank account at stake as the families of the victims seek financial damages to compensate for the loss of their loved ones.

Simpson was acquitted of murder charges on October 3 and cannot be tried for the murders again in a criminal court. In the civil trial as in the murder trial, the plaintiff will be trying to prove Simpson murdered his ex-wife and her friend, with several key differences.

The Rules:

First, the standard of proof is lower. In a civil trial, the plaintiff -- in this case the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman -- must prove Simpson committed the murders by a "preponderance of the evidence," meaning the jury may decide for the plaintiffs if they determine that there is at least a 50.1 percent probability that Simpson is responsible.

In the murder trial, the state had to prove Simpson committed the murders "beyond a reasonable doubt," meaning that jurors had to be all but positive Simpson committed the murders to convict him. This time, jurors need not come to a unanimous decision, and only nine of the 12 jurors need to agree for a verdict to be reached.

I agree it is complicated.
Cheers William.
