Liverpool Respond To Injunction As Hicks Seeks $1.6b In Damages
Written by John Toher Friends of Liverpool FC
That Tom Hicks simply will not go away. Associated Press claim that Hicks & Gillett have obtained a restraining order in a Texas court, blocking the sale of Liverpool FC to NESV by Martin Broughton following yesterday’s London High Court ruling that a sale could take place.
LIVERPOOL FC STATEMENT
“Following the successful conclusion of High Court proceedings today, the boards of directors of Kop Football and Kop Holdings met tonight and resolved to complete the sale of Liverpool to New England Sports Ventures.
“Regrettably, Thomas Hicks and George Gillett have tonight obtained a Temporary Restraining Order from a Texas District Court against the independent directors, Royal Bank of Scotland PLC and NESV to prevent the transaction being completed.
“The independent directors consider the restraining order to be unwarranted and damaging and will move as swiftly as possible to seek to have it removed.
“A further statement will be made in due course.”
