DOJ may join lawsuit against Lance Armstrong

Under the whistleblower law, the government can intervene in Mr. Landis’s suit, essentially pursuing the case on its own behalf. According to people with knowledge of the case, the Postal Service’s Office of the Inspector General and the U.S. Department of Justice have been investigating Mr. Landis’s allegations and continue to weigh whether to join the case.

It’s been a tough year for Lance.
