   AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A Texas judge is pushing Lance Armstrong closer to his first sworn testimony on details of his performance-enhancing drug use, ordering the cyclist to answer questions about who knew what and when about his doping.

   That could possibly even include information about his ex-wife and attorneys.

   Nebraska-based Acceptance Insurance Holdings is seeking the information in its lawsuit to recover $3 million in bonuses it paid Armstrong from 1999 to 2001. A judge previously refused to dismiss the case.

   The company is trying to prove a years-long conspiracy and cover-up by Armstrong to commit fraud. It wants to know when several of Armstrong's personal and business associates — including ex-wife Kristin Armstrong, team officials, the cyclist's lawyers and International Cycling Union President Pat McQuaid — first learned of his doping.

   Armstrong's attorneys say Acceptance is engaged in a "fishing expedition" intended to "make a spectacle of Armstrong's doping."
