Lance Armstrong case back in court over bonuses

Lance Armstrong

DALLAS (AP) - Lance Armstrong's attorneys are back in court to try to stop a Dallas-based company from trying to recoup millions in bonuses it paid him for races he won while using performance-enhancing drugs.

Judge Tonya Parker will hear Friday from lawyers for Armstrong, the disgraced cyclist who was stripped of seven Tour de France victories and given a lifetime ban from sports in 2012.

Dallas-based SCA Promotions wants to reopen arbitration about $12 million in bonuses it paid after three of Armstrong's tour victories. But Armstrong's attorneys argue that arbitration settlement was final and cannot be revisited.

Armstrong faces several lawsuits after admitting to doping.

SCA says it's entitled to reopening the settlement because Armstrong lied about taking drugs under oath.

Nah.... they got, what they paid for, and, cannot unwind, what they think they paid for, while, having reaped the benefits, at the time; which, were all in their dead, anyway... Besides, how, can they prove that, the benefits, they bought, are actually, the times, he, said he used drugs...??? And, that's what they get, for, buying atheletes, to, feign, some connection, between, their product, and, being a winner...??? They, aren't buying, now, with a loser, to, tout their product, so, their beef, is, in their minds... just as it always, was... Edgrrr...

What about jail time. He should go to jail for lying to the court. Like the rest of the people. Regardless of his so called status. I know other athlete that were stripped of their metals and serve time in jail.

All of the corporate entities where happy enough to make money off of Armstrong when he was winning and all of this was being swept under the carpet. They made their money during their contract periods with him. It isn't in perpetuity. They looked the other way. Now they want it both ways. How about this. They get their money back from Lance...however...they turn over all of their profits during the time he was under contract with them. They can turn them over the a childrens cancer charity. That would be fair. How about it corporations...show that there is a principal here and not greed. Get your money and give it to charity.

The Postal Service had been sponsoring the team before he even came on board. Why they were sponsoring a team is another issue for another day but it is clear they were happy with the money they made from the association with the team.
