Baseball's home run king has pleaded not guilty to perjury and obstruction of justice, and is asking a judge to dismiss the case.
In a filing last week opposing Bonds' motion for dismissal, prosecutors referred to a drug test Bonds failed in November 2001. They later said those were typos, and they meant to reference a November 2000 drug test also mentioned in the indictment.
Still, some media outlets reported that the government had procured new evidence proving Bonds had lied to a grand jury about his alleged drug use.
The mistakes were corrected the next day. But Bonds' lawyers argue in Thursday's filing that the damage was already done.
