Monday, August 25, 2008. (AP) -- Barry Bonds is asking a federal judge to throw out most of the government's perjury case against him that charges he lied to a federal grand jury about his alleged steroids use.

In a court filing Monday, lawyers for baseball's home run king argue that many of the charges stem from ambiguous answers to ambiguous questions posed by prosecutors.

Bonds was indicted last November on charges he lied when he told a grand jury in 2003 he didn't knowingly use performance-enhancing drugs. He is charged with 14 counts of making false declarations to a grand jury and one count of obstruction of justice.

Bonds, an unsigned free agent, hit .276 last year with 28 home runs, 66 RBIs and a major league-high 132 walks.
