LONDON — The World Anti-Doping Agency has spent more than $1 million helping fight the appeal by Floyd Landis of the decision stripping him of the 2006 Tour de France title for a doping offense.

WADA president John Fahey said Monday that the organization has contributed $1.3 million — 5 percent of its total budget of $26 million — to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's case against the American cyclist.

In a conference call with reporters, Fahey said he and WADA director general David Howman would meet next month with Mino Auletta, president of the Court of Arbitration for Sport. They planned to discuss how to cope with the high legal costs of cases like those of Landis, particularly whether the party at fault should be held responsible.
