Your tax dollars hard at work.
From the Chronicle:
The judge's ruling places some of the government's most significant evidence off-limits. No longer available are:
-- Reports on private steroid tests from 2000 and 2001, allegedly arranged by Anderson via the Bay Area Laboratory Cooperative in Burlingame. The government says they show Bonds was using the injectable steroids methenelone and nandrolone.
-- "Handwritten notes, calendars and drug ledgers" seized in a raid on Anderson's Burlingame condominium in 2003. The government says the trainer created the documents to track Bonds' regimen of banned drugs.
-- Testimony about doping calendars from Oakland A's slugger Jason Giambi and six other ball players who admit they obtained steroids from Anderson. The players said Anderson kept calendars for them that are similar to the ones he allegedly kept for Bonds, according to the government. The players still may be permitted to testify about other matters.
