    O.J. Tossed From Steakhouse on Derby Eve

    May 8, 10:57 PM EST


    The owner of an upscale steakhouse in Louisville said he asked O.J. Simpson to leave his restaurant the night before the Kentucky Derby because he is sickened by the attention Simpson still attracts.

    "I didn't want to serve him because of my convictions of what he's done to those families," Jeff Ruby said in a telephone interview Tuesday. "The way he continues to torture the lives of those families ... with his behavior, attitude and conduct."

    Simpson, an NFL Hall of Famer and Heisman Trophy winner, was found innocent in 1995 of killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ron Goldman but was found liable in a civil trial that followed.

    Ruby — who owns restaurants in Cincinnati, Louisville and Belterra, Ind. — said Simpson, who was in town for the Derby on Saturday, came in with a group of about 12 Friday night and was seated at a table in the back. A customer came up to Ruby and was "giddy" about seeing Simpson, Ruby said.

    "I didn't want that experience in my restaurant," Ruby said, later adding that seeing Simpson get so much attention "makes me sick to my stomach."

    He said he went to Simpson's table and said, "I'm not serving you." Ruby said when Simpson didn't respond, he repeated himself and left the room.

    Ruby said Simpson soon came up to him and said he understood and would gather the rest of his party to leave.

    Simpson's attorney, Yale Galanter, said the incident was about race, and he intended to pursue the matter and possibly go after the restaurant's liquor license.

    "He screwed with the wrong guy, he really did," Galanter said by telephone Tuesday night.

    (Seems to me he was right on target.)

    Ruby said the incident had to do with Simpson's past.

    "It was the first time since 1994 he has ever shown any class," Ruby said. "He showed it that night in the restaurant" by leaving quietly.

    Ruby said after Simpson left, people in the restaurant started applauding him. He said he has received about 100 positive e-mails since the incident.

    The walls of Ruby's restaurants are decorated with celebrity photos. A photo of Simpson and Ruby used to be on display, but Ruby said he took it down after the killings.

    Yeah, it's about race and not about the fact that a LOT of people firmly believe he's a murdering SOB who got away with it. It's ALWAYS about race.



    More to the point, it's always about race when there's not a leg to stand on.

    I know OJ and his attorney are full of shit. But even if it was about race, the owner of the restaurant as the right to pick and serve who he wants to serve. Suck it up. OJ. You're a scumbag and people know it. At least you're not on Death Row.

    Him being asked to leave is as much about race, as Simpson killing the two innocent people was. I think the Goldbergs need to look into how Simpson could afford to go to Kentucky and eat in that restuarant and go to the Kentucky Derby.

    In all seriousness, though. This situation does cause a slight bit of concern. I completely respect this business owner for his refusal of service to the man. That is within his rights, which he excersized.

    The concern I have is this: I remember the acquittal of O.J., and the near riots we dealt with afterward. There was a strain on the race relations in the jurisdiction that I worked for weeks afterward, as O.J.'s attorneys managed to turn the trial into a racially-charged circus, and many minorities celebrated openly that O.J. had been 'vindicated' from the oppression of the 'racist State', represented by Mark Firmin (in their perception). Things got sticky for a while, to say the least.

    If O.J.'s lawyers manage to spin this into yet another racial issue, which they will certainly try to do, we can prepare ourselves for some setbacks in relations, yet again. Unfortunately, there are still many out there who will rush to join the bandwagon anytime something as simple as being asked to leave can be twisted into a racial incident.

    I think we'll do well, as long as people continue to percieve O.J. for the villan that he is, and the sad joke that his desperate efforts to remain the center of attention truly are.

    OJ did the right thing by leaving. Now the lawyer, he's just a whore tossing out the race card. The next to get in are the extortion team of Jackson and Sharpton. Pretty soon we will know who is the all-time sleaze lawyer of that state.

    He wasn't asked to leave because of his race, he was asked to leave because he's a murderer. I wonder how much success he'll have with that lawsuit. According to this article, Michael Jordan entered the restaurant shortly after OJ was asked to leave.

    Get Buzzed: Jeff Ruby turned away O.J. Simpson

    Angie Fenton

    Jeff Ruby, owner of the steakhouse Jeff Ruby’s Louisville, asked O.J. Simpson to leave his restaurant minutes after Simpson arrived about 10:30 Friday night.

    Told by a customer that the former football player had arrived at the restaurant, 325 W. Main St., Ruby said, he informed Simpson, “I am not serving you.”

    “He had a party of 10 or 12 people,” said Ruby, who had served Simpson many times at his Cincinnati restaurants before the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman, of which Simpson was acquitted.

    Ruby was offended by the attempted publishing last fall of Simpson’s book, “O.J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened,” and the television interviews scheduled to go with it, all of which were canceled after negative public reaction.

    “He continues to torture the lives of the families whose lives he’s ruined,” said Ruby, who pointed out that Simpson has not paid the $33.5 million he owes the Goldman family after being found “criminally liable” in a civil suit.

    “This was the only thing I could do for the victims’ families,” said Ruby. He said the 50 or so people in the private room where Simpson had been seated “stood up and applauded me” when Simpson left.

    “And who walks in five minutes later?” asked Ruby.

    Michael Jordan.
