TEN Iraqi Kurds are on trial after an attack which left a man fighting for his life.
They appeared at Leeds Crown Court yesterday over an attack on three men outside the Royal pub on Huddersfield Road, Ravensthorpe, on October 12 last year.
Prosecutors say the attack was planned as revenge for a fight in another pub, Rosey's Bar, the day before.
Prosecutor Jonathan Gibson said they had weapons, including a metal pole and a chunk of wood with nails in it.
He said the attack- in the Royal's car park - was "violent and frightening".
The victims were Darren Lee, his stepson, Daniel Lee, and Lee Massey.
Darren Lee suffered a punctured lung after being stabbed and Daniel Lee had 30 stitches in wounds in his arm and chest.
Lee Massey, 31, suffered severe brain damage and leg injuries after being hit by a Honda Civic car.
Mr Gibson said the car was driven at Mr Massey by Mohsen Sadiq.
Mr Massey, who was an amateur rugby league player, spent many weeks in intensive care at Leeds General Infirmary, before being moved to a rehabilitation unit at Pinderfields Hospital, Wakefield.
He was in a wheelchair but is trying to walk.
Brain damage means he had memory loss, his right side is affected and his speech is slurred.
He has a wife, Lisa, and a daughter aged four.
Bestoon Mohammed has denied wounding the Lees with intent. Sadiq denies causing Mr Massey grievous bodily harm with intent.
The other defendants are: Ari Karim, Jaza Karim, Hawker Mahmood, Saman Ahmed, Bahgat Fayzulla, Nizar Maoloud, Herish Wali and Najat Majid. They all deny violent disorder.
All are in their 20s and 30s and from Huddersfield or Dewsbury.
The case continues.
