A class-action lawsuit filed in a federal court in California this week accuses cyclist Lance Armstrong and his book publishers of peddling fiction as fact.
The lawsuit mentions two of Armstrong's books, "Every Second Counts" and "It's Not About the Bike." It accuses the cyclist and his publishers of fraud and false advertising.
The suit says the books were sold "based upon the false belief that they were true and honest works of nonfiction when, in fact, Defendants knew or should have known that these books were works of fiction."
After years of vehemently denying that he used drugs to boost his performance during his record seven Tour de France wins, Armstrong confessed to Oprah Winfrey last week that he lied.

Silly! He should keep the book! I hear Milli Vanilli records are collectors items now!!
Cut me a break. Readers don't sue....Lawyers sue.

Lol @ Paul Boymel, thats very true. Makes you wonder how they coerced these clients of theirs?
Well, technically we now know that it wasn't about the bike...
