Baseball Legend Roger Clemens Wants the Feds to Pay His Attorney Fees

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.
