LAS VEGAS (AP) — O.J. Simpson was back in a Las Vegas courtroom on Tuesday for day two of a hearing dissecting his former lawyer's representation in his 2008 robbery-kidnapping conviction.

Simpson's current lawyers asked the judge Tuesday to let the shackled former football star have one hand free so he can take notes and sip water while a Nevada judge hears evidence on whether the 65-year-old deserves a new trial.  The judge agreed.

The hearing is aimed at proving Simpson's trial former lawyer, Yale Galanter, had conflicting interests during the proceedings and shouldn't have handled Simpson's case.
