(Doping in cyling) 'Finish line' approaching for Armstrong

Sports | 14 Feb 2017 2:22 pm

Attorney Paul D. Scott who represents Lance Armstrong's former U.S. Postal Service teammate Floyd Landis, (pictured), in the case also involving the US government, said he was delighted'' to see the case move toward trial. 

"The finish line for Mr. Armstrong ... is fast approaching,'' Scott said. 

Landis is himself a former doping cheat who was stripped of his 2006 Tour de France title.

Lance Armstrong's attorney Elliot Peters said the court's decision laid out Armstrong's case, even as it let the lawsuit proceed. 

"There is no actual evidence of any quantifiable financial harm,'' to the Postal Service, Peters said. "So the government may now proceed to a trial that, as a practical matter, it cannot win.'' -AP
