Fulham take Richards fight to Court of Appeal
Thursday 02 December 2010
Fulham have taken their fight to oust Sir David Richards as Premier League chairman to the Court of Appeal after challenging a High Court judgement for their dispute with him to be settled by arbitration.
Yesterday Mr Justice Vos granted Richards and the Premier League a stay on the legal action taken against them by the London club, who want the former removed for allegedly scuppering their attempt to sign Peter Crouch in July 2009. But the judge also gave Fulham leave to appeal the verdict. A club statement confirmed the club's intention to go to the Court of Appeal. Richards' removal is one of two possible outcomes sought by Fulham, the other being a ban on his involvement in future transfers.
