Lance Armstrong’s fight against USADA reminds me a lot of the arguments against UDRP

Not enough time to respond to “kangaroo court”.
Lance Armstrong is fighting hard to not have to defend himself against the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which he calls a “Kangaroo court”.
Armstrong wants nothing to do with the USADA process, so he’s trying to short circuit it by going to the courts. A lot of domain name owners have had it with UDRP, so they do the same thing.
His arguments sound a lot like the arguments made against the uniform domain name dispute resolution policy (UDRP) arbitration panels.
Among Armstrong’s grievances about the USDADA process:
* He doesn’t get enough time to respond to the complaint
* He may not get to cross examine witnesses/evidence
* The arbitration panel is already predisposed to find againt him
(Editor’s note: as an Austin resident, I’m barred from ever thinking that Lance Armstrong is guilty of anything other than being an inspirational bad-ass.)
