Ongoing Lance Armstrong Lawsuit Could Be Trouble for Cheating Athletes Everywhere
Today's newspapers report a Texas judge has refused Armstrong's request to dismiss an insurance company's lawsuit seeking the return of bonus money it paid him from 1999 to 2001. Depositions (questioning the cyclist under oath) and other information gathering discovery are sure to follow. As I've written before on this blog, fraud-based civil lawsuits against doping athletes and their enablers seeking return of monies paid would be a huge deterrent against such cheating. Look for more cases soon, including against some equally high-profile players.
