Leeds United Ownership

Investigate the Football League's handling of Massimo Cellino's attempt to buy Leeds United AFC, particularly with regard to delaying a decision until a court case had taken place. At the time of the application he was 'innocent until proved guilty'. What would have happened if the court case had been 6 months away?
