LAS VEGAS (AP) - It's been more than four years since O.J. Simpson was handcuffed in a Las Vegas courtroom and hauled off to prison for nine to 33 years.
On Monday, the former football hero returns to Clark County District Court in blue prison clothes while his attorneys try to convince a judge that his trial lawyer, Yale Galanter, shouldn't have been handling Simpson's case at all.
They say Galanter was a witness before the crime and could have testified in Simpson's defense.
Simpson was convicted of armed robbery in a 2007 hotel room confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers he thought had personal belongings he lost following his acquittal in 1995 in the slaying of his ex-wife and her friend.
Simpson is due to testify later this week.
