If You Thought Tom Hicks Had Forgotten About "Epic Swindle" In Liverpool, You Were Wrong
Maybe you recall: The U.K. justice wasn't at all pleased when Hicks and Gillett ran to the George Allen downtown to block a transaction overseas, and in the end, the former partners in the football club had to withdraw their temporary restraining order blocking the sale. But attorneys at Fish & Richardson always said: They'd be back. And so they are.
Attorneys repping the club are making their case now. But via the Liverpool Echo, we get this recap of the morning's doings:
"Whatever else [Hicks and Gillett] may have done in the past, the question now is not one of punishing them for what they have done before," Mr Girolami told the court.Please let it be here. Please.
He said the pair had complied with the judge's previous rulings and were not taking this action in defiance.
Mr Justice Floyd asked him whether Hicks and Gillett had decided that it was more convenient to sue in Texas.
"There is no settled decision by us to sue in England or abroad," he answered.
