Police chief Bill Blair has served Councillor Doug Ford with a defamation notice in the wake of comments he made regarding an impending subpoena for Mayor Rob Ford.

Councillor Ford was served Monday evening by Chief Bill Blair's lawyers.

Ford accused the chief of leaking news that the mayor was to be subpoenaed in the extortion case involving former friend Alessandro Lisi. The councillor said the news was leaked as "payback."

The chief is asking for a retraction of the comments and a public apology. 

Legal analyst Ed Prutschi tells Newstalk 1010's Jerry Agar that if councillor Ford does that, the case will likely never end up in court. 

Blair's spokesperson says that the chief, not taxpayers, is personally paying for the legal action.
