Lance Armstrong Sued by Book Readers
Rob Stutzman and Jonathan Wheeler filed the lawsuit on Tuesday, claiming they never would have read Armstrong’s books — 2000’s It’s Not About the Bike and the 2003 follow-up, Every Second Counts — “had they known the true facts concerning Armstrong’s misconduct and his admitted involvement in a sports doping scandal.”
“Stutzman bought the book in California and read it cover to cover,” the lawsuit reads. “Although Stutzman does not buy or read many books, he found Armstrong’s book incredibly compelling and recommended the book to several friends.
Stutzman and Wheeler are also calling the books “works of fiction,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Last week, Armstrong confessed to Oprah Winfrey that he used performance-enhancing drugs during all seven of his Tour-de-France victories, calling his success story “one big lie.”
