Clemens sues McNamee

Roger Clemens is willing to meet his accuser in court. He has filed suit against Brian McNamee for defamation.

The suit alleges that the federal government pressured McNamee to testify against Clemens and that he lied as a result.

Clemens becomes the first athlete to take this step. If he wins, the integrity of the Mitchell Report – and commissioner Bud Selig – will be damaged beyond repair. The question now is whether Clemens can prove it.

The Houston Chronicle story has more detail. Clemens says he will still testify before Congress.
