Dallas Stars Sale: Hicks' Latest Legal Attempt to Stop Sale of Liverpool FC to NESV Thwarted by High Court in London


Yesterday, it appeared that Liverpool supporters were finally rid of Tom Hicks and George Gillett when the High Court in London ruled for RBS and NESV, citing that Hicks and Gillett violated a refinance agreement when they tried to have two members from the Liverpool FC Board of Directors removed.

Well, yesterday afteroon, Hicks got an injunction from a Texas State Court. At that time, I wondered just what kind of jurisdiction a Texas State court could possibly have in England.

It turns out, they don't. At least in this case.

Mr. Justice Christopher Floyd granted an anti-suit injunction stating that the Liverpool sale had, "nothing to do with Texas."

There's reports indicating a hearing in that same Dallas courtroom that Hicks and GIllett obtained their injunction in yesterday is set to begin at 1:00 pm CDT, but I have not been able to independently confirm on any UK or North Texas based media outlet.
