Williams & Connolly

Summary: Floyd Landis filed papers to receive the documents that he has yet to receive from Williams & Connolly for the communications between Armstrong and his agent company.

Floyd Landis, Lance Armstrong’s former teammate, has filed papers against Williams & Connolly for not turning over documents about the firm’s relationship with Armstrong. Landis claims that the documents are not protected by attorney-client privileges because they are part of Armstrong’s scheme to hide his use of banned substances while a member of the U.S. Postal Service cycling team.

According to Landis’ attorneys at the Law Office of Paul D. Scott, Williams & Connolly do not want to comply with the request. Williams & Connolly was served with a subpoena by Landis in May for the documents. The documents show the communications between Armstrong and Capital Sports & Entertainment Holdings Inc (CSE). CSE was Armstrong’s agent and business manager while he was on the cycling team.

Landis claims that the law firm knowingly spread lies about Armstrong’s performance-enhancing drug use to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency with false statements and challenges to the doping allegations in arbitration and court proceedings. This involvement, Landis’ lawyers argue, exemptions the firm for crime-fraud circumstances to attorney-client privileges. As well as the fact that CSE was not a client of Williams & Connolly, so there is no right to the privileges.

Landis first brought the False Claims Act case against Armstrong in 2010 and the two have been going back and forth with lawsuits since. The federal government joined the case two years ago in 2013.
