ICL can't sue BCCI in UK, says HC

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday refused unsanctioned Indian Cricket League from filing a suit against the Indian Cricket Board in the United Kingdom courts.

Last month Essel Sport, had sent a legal notice last month threatening to file a suit in the High Court of England & Wales in London seeking various reliefs and damages against the BCCI, the England and Wales Cricket Board and the International Cricket Council for not recognising it.

"In a suit filed by the BCCI before the Delhi High Court for an anti-suit injunction against Essel Sports Pvt. Ltd. (Indian Cricket League), the Delhi High Court on Tuesday passed an order restraining Essel Sports (ICL) from filing a suit in the Courts of the U.K. against the BCCI," a release from the BCCI said.

Essel Sports had said in the notice that if they did not receive a full and satisfactory substantive response from the BCCI by December 7, 2009, they would file proceedings in the England Court.
