Federal Judge Refuses to Throw Out Roger Clemens Perjury Case

Reuters on September 2, 2011 released the following:

“(Reuters) – A judge on Friday refused to throw out the perjury case against pitching star Roger Clemens over steroid use after a mistrial was declared when prosecutors presented evidence that had been barred.

Judge Reggie Walton agreed to start a second trial on April 17 over whether the former pitcher lied when he told Congress he had never taken steroids or performance-enhancing drugs. Prosecutors contend that he did and committed perjury and obstruction.
