Simpson and his codefendant were both convicted on all the 12 counts in the lawsuit, resulted from their confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers last year in a Las Vegas hotel.

The verdict means that 61-year-old Simpson, who was infamously acquitted of murdering his ex-wife and her friend in Los Angeles 13 years ago, faces a possible life sentence for a five-minute quarrel. He will be sentenced on Dec. 5.

The 1995 trial of Simpson, a former NFL player and a rich blacksports star, attracted worldwide media attention and became a cultural flash point that drew huge courthouse crowds and polarized black and white Americans.
