7 time Tour de France Winner, still

1.     Let’s get a couple of things straight. Jurisdiction is important in all legal issues. If a court does not have jurisdiction, then it cannot rule.

Same applies in arbitration, quasi-governmental agencies and USADA.

USADA is an Acronym for US Anti-Doping Agency. The US stands for United States. It has the same power to take away an award earned in France as I have to take away any award from the little kid down the street. (Which sort of reminds me of how the head of USADA is acting?)

2.     The agency in charge of cycling is UCI. Union Cyclists Internationale, another non-US non-governmental agency. That agency can ban someone from cycling for life because they cannot sanction races were banned people enter.

3.     Tour de France can hand out yellow jerseys, or actually, the Amaury Sport Organisation. Tour de France can take back yellow jerseys. Tour de France and Amaury Sport Organisation are European organizations.

See the stretch,…………………. all the way across the Atlantic. Until the UCI or Amaury Sport Organisation says something, Lance Armstrong is the seven-time  winner of the Tour de France.

4.     Not appearing at an arbitration hearing is not admitting to doping. It is looking at the chances of winning and how the arbitration proceedings will work and realizing that you can’t win, clean or dirty. Why do you think Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds went to court? Because court is fair, in this case.

Arbitration is normally very fair and something I suggest. However, arbitration is controlled by the rules of the people who set up the arbitration, in this case, USADA. (Sort of like arbitrating a stock broker dispute with other stock brokers serving as the arbitrators. You don’t win until you sue in court.)

So?

I’m not defending anyone. I’m not saying that someone did or did not US substances that are not allowed to be used when cycle racing. I do, however, believe in the law. Something that Travis Tygart does not seem to understand, or at least he does not understand jurisdiction and venue.

For articles on Jurisdiction & Venue see:

A Recent Colorado Supreme Court Decision lowers the requirements to be brought into the state to defend a lawsuit.                                                                                                     http://rec-law.us/zfpK8Z

Four releases signed and all of them thrown out because they lacked one simple sentence!     http://rec-law.us/vZoa7x

Jurisdiction in Massachusetts allows a plaintiff to bring in Salomon France to the local court.   http://rec-law.us/zdE1uk

This case is a summer camp lawsuit and the decision looks at venue and jurisdiction; however the complaint alleges medical malpractice against a camp!                                   http://rec-law.us/yCRj3U

For articles on what is currently going on with Lance Armstrong that are correct, I’ve found one. Armstrong’s Yellow Jerseys Haven’t Gone Anywhere…Yet
