CAS to rule on Olympic doping rule in September

The Court of Arbitration for Sport has set a September target to rule on the legality of an International Olympic Committee anti-doping rule that's barring LaShawn Merritt from the 2012 London Games.

Sports' highest court says it will hear the United States Olympic Committee's dispute with the IOC on Aug. 17, and expects a verdict the following month.
