Lance Armstrong Ordered to Testify

On Monday, Lance Armstrong was ordered by the Texas Supreme Court to give sworn, videotaped testimony next month regarding his use of performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France seven times.

Armstrong is being sued by a Texas company seeking the return of about $12 million in performance bonuses. An arbitration panel has issued subpoenas for testimony from Armstrong on June 12 and his longtime business manager Bill Stapleton on June 9.

Earlier this month, Armstrong asked the Texas Supreme Court to intervene – saying his previous settlement with SCA Promotions is binding, and therefore cannot be reopened. Furthermore, Armstrong’s attorneys requested that the Supreme Court to rule quickly in this matter.

Armstrong provided written sworn testimony last year in an unrelated lawsuit, and for the first time provided names of those he says assisted in his doping.
