Lance Armstrong’s lawyer: ‘Stop leaks’

AUSTIN, Texas – Lance Armstrong’s attorney has sent a letter to the federal prosecutor investigating the seven-time Tour de France winner and his associates for possible fraud and doping violations, complaining about leaks to the media.

Monday’s letter from Tim Herman to Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas Miller in Los Angeles says it is “especially unfair to subject Mr. Armstrong to this continuing media blitz when he is in the middle of his final Tour de France.”

A copy of the letter was obtained by The Associated Press.

The letter also said Armstrong’s attorneys talked to Miller about the leaks less than two weeks ago and are “extremely frustrated that these leaks have intensified.”
