Former Major League Baseball legend Roger Clemens is making a bid for a second victory.

In July, U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton declared a mistrial in his perjury case because of a prosecutorial error.

Now, he wants the feds to pay for attorney fees and other costs in the trial, Business Week reports.

“An award of fees and costs will at least partially restore Mr. Clemens to the same position he was in before the prosecutors engaged in conduct meriting a mistrial,” Rusty Hardin, a lawyer for Clemens, said in a court filing in federal court in Washington, according to business week.

Bill Miller, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office declined comment, citing an order by Judge Walton not to discuss the case publicly, Newsweek reported.

WASHINGTON — Bill Miller, a former reporter and editor at the Washington Post,  who specialized in law enforcement coverage, is crossing over to the other side.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in D.C. announced Monday that Miller will take over as the public information officer for the busy office.

A veteran reporter, Miller worked for the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Philadelphia Inquirer before coming to the Washington Post.

Miller, who had a reputation as an affable person, and top notch and meticulous  reporter and editor, worked for 10 years as a reporter for The Post, mostly covering the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the local and federal courts.

From 2002 to 2009, he worked as an editor on the city desk, and supervised criminal justice coverage. In 2009, he took a buyout from the Washington Post.

Miller replaces Ben Friedman, an assistant U.S. Attorney who had taken over the public affairs duties from Channing Phillips. Phillips had been named interim U.S. Attorney and subsequently went to work at the Justice Department.

He has a masters degree in Justice  from American University.

Miller has two children and is married to Doreen Gentzler, a news anchor for the Washington,D.C., NBC affiliate WRC-TV.
