Liverpool's former owners head for High Court in takeover damages bid
Liverpool FC's former owners are set for a return to the High Court in the latest twist in the long-running saga over the takeover of the football club. US businessmen Tom Hicks and George Gillett, who are being represented by City firm Peters & Peters and Paul Girolami QC of Maitland Chambers, are due to return to the High Court on 9-10 February next year. Hicks and Gillett are seeking to overturn an anti-suit injunction granted by Mr Justice Floyd in the High Court on 14 October, which dismissed a restraining order taken out in Texas by the pair to block the sale of the club.
