Texas Judge AllowsLance Armstrong Lawsuit To Proceed

Tour de Georgia - Stage 2

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A Texas judge has refused Lance Armstrong’s request to dismiss an insurance company’s lawsuit seeking $3 million in bonuses it paid him from 1999 to 2001.

Nebraska-based Acceptance Insurance Holdings sued Armstrong, saying he cheated by using performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France. Armstrong’s attorneys argue the statute of limitations for fraud and breach of contract claims expired by 2011.

The company says the clock didn’t start until Armstrong admitted to doping last January.

Travis County Judge Darlene Byrne on Monday denied Armstrong’s request to dismiss. Armstrong’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The lawsuit is one of several pending against Armstrong, including a federal case seeking to recover more than $40 million paid to Armstrong and his team by the U.S. Postal Service.
