SCA Promotions has taken legal action against Armstrong and his manager Bill Stapleton in Dallas state district court in February, claiming Armstrong conned by using performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour seven times.

SCA paid Armstrong’s team management company Tailwind Sports for winning those titles, which have been now stripped away from the triathlon sportsman.
