When Alex Gibney set out to make a movie about cyclist Lance Armstrong’s 2009 Tour de France comeback, the documentarian admits he bought into the hype
Lawyers urged a federal judge to allow the government’s fraud lawsuit against Lance Armstrong to continue.
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.
The Justice Department laid out its case in a lawsuit against Lance Armstrong on Tuesday, saying the cyclist violated his contract with the U.S. Postal Service and was “unjustly enriched” while cheating to win the Tour de France.
An Armstrong lawyer, Robert Luskin, said Friday that negotiations with the government failed because “we disagree about whether the postal service was damaged.”
