A federal judge ruled Tuesday that Roger Clemens can keep his lawyer in the defamation lawsuit against his former trainer, who accused the pitcher of using performance-enhancing drugs. Lawyers for Clemens' former trainer, Brian McNamee, filed a motion for attorney Rusty Hardin to be removed from the case because Hardin represented Clemens and pitcher Andy Pettitte for several days before the release of the Mitchell Report in December.

The Lakers avoided one potential headache before the start of training camp when Jordan Hill pleaded no contest to assault charges Thursday in Houston in a move that will allow the reserve power forward to avoid prison. According to Associated Press, Hill must pay a $500 fine, undergo domestic violence counseling, make a $100 donation to a violence fund and avoid any contact with his former girlfriend, who had accused him of choking her in February at a time when Hill played for the Houston Rockets.

Jurors on Sunday had asked for a dictionary, but U.S. District Judge Melinda Harmon turned down the request, saying the panel could ask for definitions of specific words. The jury sent no additional notes.

NEW YORK -- One of Brian McNamee's lawyers said Sunday he believed the Justice Department will open a criminal investigation into Roger Clemens' denials of doping.

McNamee's lawyers filed motions in U.S. District Court in Houston, 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 the pitcher used steroids and human growth hormone from 1998 to 2001.
