NEW YORK (AP) _ A judge is asking former Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens to settle a long-running legal battle with a team strength coach.

Clemens and his accuser, Brian McNamee, were meeting with the federal judge behind closed doors on Tuesday in Brooklyn.

A 2009 lawsuit filed by McNamee alleges Clemens defamed him after the trainer told federal investigators and Congress that he’d injected Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone.

The judged ruled earlier this month that Clemens has to turn over hundreds of emails and other documents to McNamee. The judge interrupted a hearing on the documents Tuesday to invite both sides into her chambers to try to hammer out a settlement.
