The judge agreed.

The hearing is aimed at proving Simpson's trial lawyer, Yale Galanter (gah-LAN'-ter), had conflicted interests and shouldn't have handled Simpson's case.

Simpson is serving nine to 33 years in prison for his 2008 conviction in the armed robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room.
