Peter Cosgrove, LDL, and a highly explosive employment tribunal
The employment tribunal of the man who was overseeing the LDL investigation has potential to be one of the most explosive cases involving the city council in recent times.
Previous employees - like Capital of Culture chief executive Jason Harborow and city treasurer Phil Halsall - who felt mistreated were given huge pay-offs as part of their exit.
Mr Cosgrove, who knows all the internal workings of Liverpool Direct Limited like the back of his hand, could make potentially highly embarrassing revelations as part of his case.
LDL remains a highly controversial issue and many will wonder whether the case could see David McElhinney called to give evidence.
Mr Cosgrove's suspension was the first of the new Labour administration and the first under the leadership of LDL boss Mr McElhinney, who is acting council chief executive.
But will the case ever make it to tribunal, or will the council settle?
