BREAKING NEWS – Las Vegas, Nevada – The Cosmopolitan hotel-casino is legally responding to O.J. Simpson’s lawsuit that he was defamed and portrayed in a false light after a 2017 incident at one of the property’s lounges.
According to the court filing, TMZ, a celebrity news site, who is not named in the lawsuit, reported that Simpson was “wasted, ” “extremely unruly,” “drunk and became disruptive,” “angry,” and that “glasses broke at the bar.” Simpson banning from the property was widely reported.
The Cosmopolitan’s response in the court filing says “the facts … do not support the conclusion that allegedly being called “wasted,” “drunk,” “disruptive,” or “angry” resulted in any embarrassment or tangible damage to his reputation.”
“We will see them in court,” O.J. Simpson’s attorney stated. “And I have no doubt that we will be able to prove to a jury that the Cosmopolitan is openly bigoted toward wife-beating double murderers.”
