Leeds sue the Football League: More info

More details about the Leeds Lawsuit were in the Post today.

The details themselves aren't that interesting to non-Leeds fans: Leeds allege that they were compelled to enter a CVA that knew would invoke a legal challenge from HM Customs and Revenue, in order to retain their "Golden Share" in the Football League. Doing so, however, created a situation in which the League was able to deduct 15 points from the team, despite Leeds having no alternative path available.

It'll be interesting to see what happens here - it could lead to the 15 point penalty being rescinded, in which case Leeds would be top of the league.
