Lance Armstrong's (Quixotic?) attempt to take on the US Anti Doping Agency

Lance Armstrong came out swinging today with a historic lawsuit against the USADA, which has charged him with doping. The suit was dismissed (without prejudice) by a federal judge within hours as an attempt to stir popular opinion. Expect Armstrong to refile the lawsuit soon.

Here's my take for Sports Illustrated on Armstrong's chances and strategy.


What effect do you think the Supreme Court's ruling in SF Arts & Athletics v. USOC will have on any attempt by Armstrong to argue that USADA is a state actor? The Supreme Court held that the USOC is not a state actor; so, if the USOC created USADA, it would seem that Armstrong will have a tough time claiming that USADA is a state actor.
