Bruce Robertson appeared on MSNBC Dayside with John Gibson in January of 1997 during the O. J. Simpson civil trial in which Simpson was eventually found to be financially liable for the deaths of his wife Nichole and her friend Ronald Goldman. Robertson was asked about how plaintiff attorneys could determine how much O. J. was worth. Robertson indicated that investigators had many tools and sources to uncover hidden assets and that they could do it in a very short time if necessary.
Later on in the show Robertson was questioned about how to determine whether or not Simpson had hidden any of his assets. Robertson described how investigators go back 20 years or more and trace the financial paper trail forward to determine what was done with assets.
