New York Post: Armstrong’s lawsuit defense: Postal Service should have known I was cheating [ TLR Note: John Keker is once again “pulling an Elliot Peters” as same argument can be made Keker & Van Nest knew (or should have known) many years ago client Armstrong is guilty….]

Duh.

That’s the argument Lance Armstrong is using to defend himself in a $120 million federal lawsuit accusing him, and others, of defrauding his former team’s sponsor, the U.S. Postal Service.

Armstrong was stripped of seven Tour de France titles last year amid allegations of doping and in January he admitted that he was indeed using performance-enhancing drugs to win races. In a 25-page rebuttal to the suit, Armstrong is saying the Postal Service should have known he was doping all along because rumors of his PED use had gotten loads of news coverage, according to the Wall Street Journal. But officials “did nothing.”……….

“Instead, the Postal Service renewed the Sponsorship Agreement,” Armstrong’s lawyers, John Keker and Elliot Peters of Keker & Van Nest, LLP, wrote, adding that it also “basked in the favorable publicity of its sponsorship.”

What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here.

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]

  • Is the CJA suddenly an unauthorized collective bargaining unit? 2016/10/27
    (JCW is responsible for retitling this press release)(JCW also feels that this is a great reason to surrender your CJA membership and join the ACJ and no, we’re not judges or affiliated with the ACJ in any manner) October 25, 2016 Last May, the California Judges Association crowed that it had been given “a seat […]
