PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Famed defense lawyer F. Lee Bailey has filed for bankruptcy again to tie up loose ends following his bankruptcy filing last year.

The attorney, whose high-profile clients have included O.J. Simpson, discharged more than $4 million in debt to the Internal Revenue Service in the previous case, Bailey's attorney, John Molleur, said Tuesday.

The new filing aims to resolve IRS liens on Bailey's Maine home, personal property, pensions and book royalties and to set up a payment plan, Molleur said.

"He'd finally like to be left alone and move on with his life. He's been fighting with the IRS for many years," Molleur said.

Bailey was one of Simpson's attorneys during the former NFL star's 1995 murder trial, which ended in his acquittal in the killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

Bailey rose to prominence in the 1960s when he secured an acquittal of Dr. Sam Sheppard's conviction in the murder of his pregnant wife. He also represented Albert DeSalvo, who claimed to be the Boston Strangler.
