Richard Buxbaum Thinks London Court Will Decide Trans-Atlantic Soccer Deal

The Dallas Morning News, October 15, 2010 by Brendan Case

The legal tug-of-war between courts in Dallas and London isn’t uncommon if each court has grounds for some jurisdiction over the parties, said Richard Buxbaum…. “Usually this kind of impasse gets resolved when the court that, on the total fact situation, has less claim to hear the merits [and] yields to the other,” he said. “Here, assuming that the club sale is a matter of English law, that would speak in favor of the English court eventually being the one to decide on the substantive claim.”
