Baseball standout Roger Clemens says he's not concerned that his attorney briefly represented his former-teammate-turned-accuser Andy Pettitte.
Clemens told a federal judge in Washington on Wednesday that he
waives any potential conflict involving his lawyer, Rusty Hardin.
The attorney briefly represented both players three years ago just
before the release of a report alleging they used performance-enhancing drugs.
Clemens denies the allegation, while Pettitte admitted he used
human growth hormone and claimed Clemens admitted privately he did, too. Pettitte is expected to testify against Clemens on charges
that he lied about the drug use during a trial scheduled for this
Hardin told the judge that Clemens hired another attorney
outside his firm more than a year ago in anticipation of this issue
and that attorney will cross-examine Pettitte.
