Ullrich wins a step in Coast trial

Jan Ullrich may have some good news from German courts, which may order the former owner of the defunct Team Coast, Günther Dahms, to pay the retired rider up to 500,000 Euro in unpaid salary. A court in Düsseldorf indicated that it had doubts about arguments from Dahms that he did not have to pay Ullrich because he doped at the time, and ordered the hearing continued on May 28.

Dahms owed Ullrich about 340,000 Euro in unpaid salary, plus interest. It is unclear whether he would be able to actually make the payments, according to the dpa press agency. A court in Duisburg, Germany, already ordered Dahms to pay Ullrich the moneys owed in 2004, calling the charges that Ullrich doped while on Team coast speculation and without legal proof. Dahms has requested access to the files allegedly linking Ullrich to the Operación Puerto.
