Ruling on Liverpool sale soon

2011-02-16 21:17

London - A British judge will rule on Thursday whether Liverpool's former American owners can sue in the United States over the enforced sale of the club to the Boston Red Sox ownership group.

Tom Hicks and George Gillett Jr. claim that an "epic swindle" by Liverpool directors and the club's lenders led to a cut-price £300 sale to New England Sports Ventures.

The former owners' legal team argued in London's High Court last week that an order preventing them from pursuing damages outside Britain or the European Union should be lifted.

In October, they had to withdraw a temporary restraining order blocking the sale, which had been obtained in a Texas court, to avoid being declared in contempt of the London court.

    Hicks and Gillett should be the ones facing court action for the damage they inflicted on the greatest football club in the world.

    Waht a bunch of plonkers, as Bob said, they did their best to suck as much out of the club as they could and when it went sour, they want to make more from it. Languish in your predicament foolish Septic Tanks!!
