Dept. of Justice Joining Suit Against Armstrong

WASHINGTON, D.C._ The Department of Justice was expected to announce Friday that it is joining a civil whistle blower suit against Lance Armstrong.

This is a case that will claim the US Postal Service was defrauded out of millions paid to sponsor Armstrong's cycling team. Former Armstrong teammate Floyd Landis first filed the suit under seal. After long consideration, the DOJ will officially join the case Friday.

It's potentially a $100M case against Armstrong and those who co-owned his team.
