Judge says 'no' to Clemens’ request for trial costs reimbursement

WASHINGTON (AP) - Roger Clemens won't be getting back the money he spent on his first perjury trial, the one that ended in a mistrial.

A judge today denied the former pitcher's request for fees and other costs associated with the trial that ended abruptly last July when prosecutors showed jurors a snippet of videotaped evidence that had been ruled inadmissible.

Clemens was retried and acquitted this year.
