Successful team work for football manager

01 February 2010

A successful settlement was achieved for the former manager of Yeovil Town FC in his libel claim against his former club. The claim was brought after the Chair of Yeovil Town FC published allegations on the club’s website following the manager’s departure in February 2009. A global settlement of his libel and employment claims was negotiated, with payment of substantial damages and his legal costs and an agreed statement for publication.
