Jacobs responds to scientist's comment. Saturday, we reported on comments made by a scientist about Jacobs's discussion of the Hamilton case. Says Ashendon missed the context of the talk on the show and went off on a personal attack. Jacobs takes the opportunity to defend other common complaints about his representation in doping cases:
- The ADAs hide evidence;
- Athletes make public statements after they've gotten crucified by ADA leaks.
- Most of his cases focus on negotiating sanction, not fighting the science or labs.
- He's successful in getting sanctions reduced, or dismissals prior to arbitration.
- Ashendon wasn't an effective witness in SCA Promotions vs . Armstrong.
