Restaurateur Refuses O.J. Service
O.J. Simpson visited Louisville, KY this past weekend for the Kentucky Derby. Not everyone was glad to see him. Jeff Ruby, owner of the steakhouse Jeff Ruby’s Louisville, refused service to Simpson and his party of 10 - 12 people.
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.”Mr. Ruby owns 5 or 6 restaurants in the Cincinnati area. All are expensive but worth it establishments. He is most well known restaurateur in Cincinnati and is well respected.
“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.
I applaud Mr. Ruby, also.
To Simpson's lawyer: Good luck pal. If that state is anything like my home state, liquor licensees have the right to refuse service to anyone.
What will you do when you find out that OJ was really really innocent and the hell you took him though?
You see the families love to get in the limelight to bring attention to their finances but are not willing to meet on air with those who can really reveal what really happened. Millions upon millions NOW KNOW there is something to these psychics and that it is not phony bolonie.
no, really - i'd give him the clap...
Lord, forgive me...
WAY TO GO, MR. RUBY!!!!!!!!!!!
