ICL can't fight against BCCI in UK: Delhi HC
Advertisement
#1
MUMBAI: The Delhi High Court has restrained Indian Cricket League (ICL) from filing a case against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in the UK court, seeking damages.

The Essel Group had threatened to file a case in the high court of England and Wales in London, seeking various reliefs, including restraint orders and damages against the BCCI, the England and Wales Cricket Board and the International Cricket Council (ICC) for allegedly "boycotting" ICL.

The BCCI had filed an anti-suit injunction against Essel Sports in the Delhi High Court.

However, Delhi High Court allowed ICL to initiate action against ICC and ECB in London Courts.

BCCI said, "In a suit filed by the BCCI before the Delhi High Court for an anti-suit injunction against Essel Sports (ICL), the Delhi High Court today held that the attempt of Essel Sports (ICL) to file a suit in the Courts of the UK against the BCCI, when a suit by Essel was already pending in the Delhi High Court based on similar causes of action, was 'unconscionable'."

"Essel Sports had earlier filed a suit in the Delhi High Court in August 2007 against the BCCI, Karnataka State Cricket Association and the Union of India, making substantially the same allegations against the BCCI that were made in the recent legal notice threatening to file another suit in England. Essel Sports has not obtained any interim relief against the BCCI in the suit which remains pending," the statement added.
