Lance Armstrong Urges Judge to Dismiss Gov’t Lawsuit - KansasCity.com
Lance Armstrong is urging a federal judge to dismiss the Justice Department’s False Claims Act lawsuit against him, arguing that the claims are barred by the statute of limitations.
In the filing Tuesday, lawyers for the disgraced Austin cyclist also argue that the U.S. Postal Service, which sponsored Armstrong’s team, got exactly what it bargained for — that is, tens of millions of dollars’ worth of publicity.
The Justice Department this year joined former Armstrong teammate Floyd Landis’ whistle-blower lawsuit against Armstrong.
