Texas Supreme Court denies Lance Armstrong’s appeal in case over $12 million in prize money

Lance Armstrong has lost yet another round in his fight to keep Dallas-based SCA Promotions from collecting $12 million in bonus money.

Friday morning the Supreme Court of Texas denied Armstrong’s motion for temporary relief filed earlier this month. Armstrong and his former racing team, Tailwind Sports, filed that petition in an effort to block SCA’s efforts to recover the money paid to the Plano-born cyclist in 2006 for winning the Tour de France in 2002, ’03 and ’04.

Armstrong and Tailwind took their case to the state’s highest court just days after the Dallas-based Fifth Court of Appeals denied Armstrong’s request to keep an arbitration panel from reconvening and revisiting a 2006 agreement involving the hefty payout. As far as Armstrong and Tailwind are concerned, that 8-year-old agreement should have been the last word on the matter, despite his admission last year that he was doping during his entire career.

Armstrong is scheduled to be deposed in Austin June 12, marking the second time Dallas-based attorney Jeff Tillotson will have questioned Armstrong under oath. He’s the only attorney to have ever done so, before or after he admitted to doping. “Apparently, once wasn’t enough,” says Tillotson. Armstrong, of course, denied using performance-enhancing drugs during his previous sitdown with the attorney.

1. Of course he wants to keep his ill gotten gains

I'm surprised the right wing Texas Supreme Court ruled against him.
