In a 24-page unpublished Order of Affirmance, the Nevada Supreme Court affirms the judgment of conviction against O.J. Simpson.  The Court rejects Simpson's claims of a Batson violation, judicial misconduct, prosecutorial misconduct, limitation on the right of confrontation, hearsay violation, and redundancy of the deadly weapons enhancements.  The Court also finds that the district court properly instructed the jury on robbery and conspiracy and that there was sufficient evidence to support the conviction.

In a separate Order of Reversal and Remand, the Court grants a new trial to Simpson's co-defendant Clarence Stewart.The Court found that the district court abused its discretion in failing to sever Stewart's trial from Simpson's trial.

Both decisions were issued by Justices Cherry, Saitta and Gibbons.
