OJ Simpson to lose his house


A bank is to sell the Florida home of O J Simpson, who is serving time for kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges.

Court records show JPMorgan Chase filed for foreclosure in September. Simpson's lawyers have since filed a motion to dismiss the case. The former American football star and actor is serving a nine to 33-year prison sentence for a 2007 armed confrontation with sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas casino hotel room.
