Since it's in federal court, it's much less of a concern, and this particular judge has already shown he is not overly impressed with Armstrong's star power.
Also under AAA rules the respondent, ie Armstrong, has the preference for choice of venue for the upcoming AAA proceedings he is desperately attempting to avoid/weasel out.

R-9. Fixing of Locale

The locale of the arbitration shall be in the United States at a location determined by the Administrator using criteria established by the AAA but making every effort to give preference to the choice of the athlete or other person charged with an anti-doping rule violation.
Floyd chose the Pepperdine University School of Law, California, and set it up as a media circus in the hope of garnering public sympathy.

The problem with the exact statement you use being a "lie" is that it is opinion that it is impossible to enter the mind of the attorney and know if he did or did not believe his statement, irrespective of the ridiculousness of it. And because of attorney/client privilege, it is unlikely you would ever know exactly what he does or does not know about about his client's true actions. So, while an attorney may not lie, functionally proving they did is virtually impossible for a statement like that.
What if the same statement is repeated in public?

Judge Sparks seems not only fair but savvy. Therefore, despite the overwhelming evidence that Armstrong's suit should be dismissed, I think we are going to have to wait until August 10th for his ruling.

Why? It circumvents whining from Armstrong's camp about "due process."
