ORANGE, California (CNN) -- Closing arguments ended Wednesday in the custody battle between O.J. Simpson and the parents of Nicole Brown Simpson for his two youngest children.
Judge Nancy Wieben-Stock will take the case under advisement and will issue a written ruling, said a court spokeswoman. It is not known how long it will take for the judge to reach a decision in the case. Simpson attended Wednesday's session.
Sydney, 11, and Justin, 8, have been living with their grandparents, Louis and Juditha Brown, since Simpson was arrested in June 1994 for murdering his ex-wife and Ron Goldman. The custody trial began November 12.
Simpson, who was acquitted in October 1995 of the murders, wants his children back.
Attorneys for the Browns contended that Simpson, who signed over temporary guardianship to them after his arrest, is an unfit parent. Simpson's lawyers argued he has a right to full custody as the biological father.
