I thought this properly deserves it's own thread, as opposed to dumping it in the "Taylor to be axed from the captaincy" thread.

McCullum's lawyers at Chapman Tripp confirmed that proceedings for defamation against Parker, will be filed in the High Court at Hamilton early next week.
"Mr Parker's paper makes some very serious attacks on my integrity, my honesty andmy ethics as a professional sportsman. I have endeavoured to resolve these issues with Mr Parker but have been unable to do so. He has left me with no choice but to defend myself and my reputation this way," McCullum said.
McCullum is paying for the case himself and said he is not seeking monetary damages from Parker.
"I simply want his acknowledgment that the claims he makes are completely false."
