MSI takes West Ham to High Court

A High Court Writ has been served against West Ham United by Kia Joorabchian's companies MSI and Just Sports Inc.

Graham Shear, a solicitor representing MSI and Just Sports Inc, said,

"I can confirm the companies have begun High Court proceedings against West Ham.

A High Court writ was served on the football club's solictors. The Companies seek the court's intervention to compel West Ham to release the registration of Carlos Tevez in accordance with contracts entered into between the parties.

We are asking the court to intervene so that Tevez can be registered to play with Manchester United as soon as possible. We will be making no further statement at this time."

This afternoon FIFA recommended that the affair went to CAS (see posts below). Presumably Joorabchian is worried that if the case goes to CAS then a decision may not be reached before the transfer deadline at the end of August and that the High Court will reach a decision far more quickly.
