The lawsuit filled against Lance Armstrong by the ‘whistleblower’ has reached it final phase and may be coming to an end.
The final hearing will determine if the case would be dismissed or go on to trial.
Presiding over the case will be Judge Christopher Cooper who decision will dismiss or prolong the case. Floyd Landis and the US federal government had previously filed a $100 against Armstrong, with accusations that he had cheated the government by doping throughout the time the US Postal Service sponsored his team. USA Today had revealed in a report that should the government win, the damages owed by Armstrong would be three times the amount of the fraud.
Armstrong’s attorneys pointed out that the report released by the US Postal Service’s indicates that the company had earned more from the team when compared to the sponsorship amount they supplied.
“Those reports established that the USPS received at least $165 million in domestic and international media exposure as a result of the cycling team sponsorship between 2001 and 2004.
