  • I am praying that God will help Liverpool fc to overcome this injunction from Texas. So that the team will not go administration.
    God bless Liverpool FC

  • And Americans wonder why the world hates them...
    Can you imagine a Liverpool court granting an injunction over a dispute over the ownership of the Houston Oilers (as they were once known)?
    This presumption that US courts have jurisdiction over almost everything that goes on in the world really is repellent.

  • Good old British subservience (I could use another word, but shall remain polite) to Uncle Sam. I am sick of the USA exercising jurisdiction over all the world.
    Why are Hicks and Gillett entitled to make a profit? They wrecked the club on a speculative venture, and thoroughly deserve to lose money.
    Hoping this doesn't get me extradited to Guantanamo Bay - my hope is that as we don't have a Labour government any more, Britain may be a little more respectful of its own citizens' interests!

  • Are the owners being required to sell their shares in the club? If so, aren't the shares personal property and therefore subject to the local laws of wherever the owners are resident?

  • US States vary widely in the matters they'll take jurisdiction over. Texas has a notoriously broadly worded statute that allows it to take jurisdiction over suits which have little or no connection to the State. But blaming 'America' for this is as silly as using the Italian courts as an example of the speed and efficiency of 'European' justice.

  • Tom Hicks and George Gillet are partners in a company that owns a US based holding company that owns a British holding company that owns Liverpool Football Club and Athletics Grounds. It is the British holding company that is being required to sell Liverpool FC because the Bank it borrowed the money from want's it's money back.

    I think.
