That's my understanding (from speed reading previous posts - check earlier in thread to find out more).

Sorry, I interpreted your statement as "the Swiss court has closed -as in refused- court case".

Understood now. It's difficult to keep up with all posts, as new threads are opened every day!

Kimmage makes position clear in relation to defence fund

for people who didn't get a chance to listen to the radio program and were still concerned donating...
Quote:
Asked by Dublin radio station 98FM what would happen if those who donated had concerns about the shift from defence to attack, Kimmage made clear that they would be listened to.

“At the moment I haven’t touched a cent of it, although I have spent some money myself on this. Those who have donated will be given the choice whether they want to continue to donate to it to what is now an offence fund or whether they want to withdraw the money. It is totally up to them what they want to do with it,” he said.

“If they are not happy with the course of events, they will be more than entitled to receive their money back. There is no problem with that at all. Ultimately, I said from the get-go that when the fund was set up, that in a scenario that I would win the case or the case was dropped, all the money would be refunded to the donors. And that is very much the case as we sit here today.”

i don't see any possibility to succeed with this.
the facts are:
1. liars - they've been for long time and got profit by lying. so TRUTH.
2. cowards - the same as 1.
3. scumbags - well, i dunno if this is sueable at all.
so with all the respect for Kimmage's work on the big case, this looks like a wrong step...

I wonder if it might be in the best interest of the Lance camp to help Kimmage out? Maybe not publicly, but a leaked document or two could go a long way.

Leaked emails!!

Given his paranoid nature, I wonder if he video'd or voice recorded any of the meetings in his home - like the one with Zomegnan.

I really hope he gets to keep some of the donated money for own purposes. he deserves it.
better yet, I hope he gets offered a good job as soon as this episode ends.

How would it be in the best interest of the Lance camp? Not denying it would just interested in your line of thinking?

I guess he's certainly annoyed with Mcquaid for the way he described him at the press conference.

If Lance is concerned about his kids and family, I would guess that he cares about how he is ultimately percieved. He can spin "ringleader of giant doping operation" into "victim of corrupt system" simply by presenting evidence against the UCI.

Stranger in a strange land.

Quote:
Armstrong, who has faced constant doping allegations despite never testing positive, is also keen to prove he is clean and hopes by racing the Tour again his four children will read about it.

"I'm doing this for my kids," he says in the book.

"With news so accessible these days on the web, they'll be able to read any story they want. And I don't want them growing up and reading all these things about me and doping."
