Wow – quite a surprise this. Simon Jordan has won his court case against Iain Dowie.
All the media coverage seemed bleak from a Palace perspective, and many of the legal eagles on the BBS were expecting a negative outcome. While common sense would seem to say that Dowie engineered his way to Charlton that is quite a different thing than proving it in a court of law, especially in what appears to be a “I said/he said” case.
Apparently who is owed what will be settled at a later date (surely if we won the case then we’re owed £1m, or does that make too much sense?), so it looks like this will continue to run and run.
