FULLERTON, California (CNN) -- The judge in the O.J. Simpson child custody case is to make her ruling Friday, CNN has learned. Superior Court Judge Nancy Wieben Stock will issue her decision in a written statement at 4:15 p.m. PST (7:15 p.m. EST).
Simpson is attempting to win custody of his young two children, Sydney, 11, and Justin, 8. Both children have lived with their maternal grandparents, Louis and Juditha Brown, since Simpson was arrested in June 1994 on charges he murdered his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.
Simpson was acquitted of the murder charges in October 1995.
In the custody case, the Browns' attorneys have contended Simpson, who signed over temporary guardianship to them after his arrest, is an unfit parent. Simpson's lawyers have maintained he has a right to full custody as the father of the children.
The children have reportedly visited their father on weekends and vacations.
