HOUSTON (AP) -Lawyers for Brian McNamee want a federal judge to throw out Roger Clemens' defamation suit and to disqualify the pitcher's lead attorney.
McNamee's lawyers filed motions Tuesday in U.S. District Court, where the case was moved after Clemens filed it in Texas state court.
Clemens claims he was defamed when McNamee, his former personal trainer, said Clemens used steroids and human growth hormone from 1998-2001. McNamee's lawyers say Rusty Hardin, Clemens' lead lawyer, should be removed from the case because he also represented Andy Pettitte for a period last year.
At the request of Congress, the FBI is investigating whether Clemens lied when he repeated denials under oath last month.
