Much like a re-entry tournament, it looks as if Phil Ivey is firing another bullet at his £7.8m lawsuit against Crockfords.
According to Matthew Dowd of Archerfield Partners LLP, aka Phil Ivey's lawyer, Ivey has filed the papers to formally appeal the decision of Justice Mitting in last months hearing citing that Ivey simply believes that there was no cheating going on in th edge sorting case.
“I can confirm that Phil Ivey filed papers at the Court of Appeal last week. Phil is seeking to appeal the decision on the basis that the Judge was incorrect in both fact and law to conclude that “edge sorting” was cheating, particularly in circumstances where the Judge made it very clear in his judgment that he considered Phil to be a truthful witness and that he accepted that Phil genuinely believes that his actions during the game at Crockfords did not constitute cheating.”
