Lance Armstrong to be forced by judge to answer doping questions
The former cyclist is being forced to answer who knew what about his doping use.
A Texas judge wants answers from Lance Armstrong about the disgraced cyclist's use of performance-enhancing drugs.
A Nebraska-based company is seeking details from Armstrong about his doping, as well as who else had knowledge -- including Armstrong's lawyers and ex-wife -- of the PED use and at what time.
According to the Associated Press, Acceptance Insurance Holding is suing Armstrong for $3 million in bonuses it paid between 1999 and 2001. In short, the company is accusing the rider and his camp of hiding information regarding his doping for years.
Lawyers for Armstrong claim that Acceptance is delving into a "harassing, malicious ... fishing expedition" intended to "make a spectacle of Armstrong's doping," according to the AP.
A Texas judge, however, has ordered answers to Acceptance's questions from Armstrong by the end of this month. A trial is set for April of next year.
As the report states, Armstrong and his lawyers have a few legal loopholes -- such as spousal or attorney-client privilege -- but if they go that route Acceptance can challenge and a judge can decide what information can be withheld.
