Feds won't charge Armstrong with doping

FILE - This July 14, 2011, file photo shows Jeff Novitzky leaving federal court in Washington, after a mistrial was declared in the government's perjury case against former Major League Baseball pitcher Roger Clemens. Lance Armstrong's attorneys say illegal government leaks of grand jury information have sullied the cyclist's reputation, and have asked a court to order federal agents to discuss their contacts with the media.  The filing has 17 references to Novitzky, a Food and Drug Administration special agent who, in his prior job as an IRS special agent, ran the investigation into the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO).
