LAS VEGAS — A lawyer for O.J. Simpson says they’ll decide their next step after the Nevada Supreme Court rejected the imprisoned former football star’s latest appeal of his 2008 kidnapping and armed robbery conviction.

Attorney Patricia Palm said Friday that she’s trying to talk with Simpson at Lovelock Correctional Center about the Thursday ruling by a three-member panel of the state high court.

The justices issued a 16-page ruling saying there’s no reason to overturn a lower court judge’s decisions in the case and give Simpson a new trial.

Simpson’s lawyers argued that his trial attorney mishandled his case and had conflicts of interest.

The 68-year-old Simpson is serving 9 to 33 years for a botched hotel room heist in 2007.

He’s not eligible for parole until 2017.
