Sunday Times Sues Lance Armstrong Over Defamation Suit Payments

In an attempt to recoup the damages it paid cyclist Lance Amstrong several years ago to settle a defamation suit, the (UK) Sunday Times is suing him for 1.5 million (US) dollars now that a federal judge has put an end to his lawsuit against the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. The paper wants its original payment of nearly $500,000 back, along with interest and lawyers' fees. More here from the New York Times. More discussion of the doping debate surrounding Mr. Armstrong here from CNN.
