A defamation lawsuit against Roger Clemens should be thrown out because the seven-time Cy Young Award winner was merely trying to defend himself against his former personal trainer's doping allegations, Clemens' lawyers argued Wednesday.
Clemens should be able to respond to claims "that are disastrous to his reputation without being subject to a lawsuit," attorney Rusty Harden said at a hearing in federal court in Brooklyn.
The comments "always happened in response to accusations," Harden said Wednesday. "He is not defaming Mr. McNamee by saying these things."
