Federal Judge to Review DLA Piper Materials Sought in Roger Clemens Perjury Case


A federal judge in Washington, D.C., is going to do an in camera review of DLA Piper materials sought by the defense team representing renowned former major-league pitcher Roger Clemens in a perjury case.

The law firm says the materials, which were developed in connection with an investigation of the use of performance-enhancing drugs in Major League Baseball, are protected by the work-product privilege. Defense attorney Rusty Hardin, who is representing Clemens, is seeking the documents in an effort to show that the star witness against Clemens is lying, reports the Blog of Legal Times.

A Reuters article provides additional details.
