Feds Respond to Leak Allegations by Lance Armstrong’s Attorneys

Unless someone leaks it, we won’t know what federal prosecutors said in a sealed motion filed Monday in response to complaints by star cyclist Lance Armstrong’s attorneys, who say the feds leaked info about a grand jury probe into Armstrong and allegations of doping.

The Associated Press reported that LA U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman Thom Mrozek said Monday prosecutors filed the response under seal to safeguard rules protecting grand jury secrecy.

Armstrong’s attorneys in July filed a motion complaining about the leaks reported in such publications as the Wall Street Journal and New York Times were harming Armstrong’s reputation, AP reported.

Armstrong’s lawyers want a judge to require federal agents to detail conversations with the media and hold officials in contempt for the leaks, AP reported.

As a last resort, they’ve want reporters to reveal their sources.
