Too Busy Hunting For The Real Killers… [6:47 am]

..To pay his DirectTV bill. And, to think, a movie star caught “stealing signal:” O.J. Simpson Is Ordered to Pay DirecTV in Signal-Theft Case [pdf]

The satellite TV giant on Tuesday was referring to its civil court victory in which a Florida judge ordered Simpson to pay $25,000 for allegedly stealing its signals.

The case stems from the recovery in 2001 of two “bootloaders” in Simpson’s home that allowed viewers to tap into DirecTV signals without paying for them.

“This ruling serves as a reminder that there are consequences to signal theft, whether you’re O.J. Simpson or John Q. Public,” said Dan Fawcett, the company’s executive vice president of legal and business affairs.

Simpson’s lawyer, Yale Galanter, said his client would appeal the judge’s ruling.
