DirecTV Squeezes The Juice

(Posted July 28, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES ( New Flash: O.J. Simpson is still looking for the real killer, but DirecTV is convinced that the company has nailed the real cable thief.

A U.S. District Judge in the Southern District of Florida has ordered the former NFL star, "Naked Gun" thespian and accused violent criminal to pay DirecTV $25,000 in damages, attorneys fees and costs stemming from the theft of cable services. How happy is DirecTV to have nabbed this master criminal? The company put out a release celebrating.

In 2001, a raid on Simpson's Miami residence -- home base for both golfing and real-killer-searching -- yielded two illegal devices known as "bootloaders," designed to steal DirecTV programming.

Simpson's attorneys have claimed that Simpson wasn't living in the home at the time and vowed to appeal. DirecTV's statement, though, says that Simpson admitted to use of the illegal devices.
