WWE: The Latest on TNA’s Lawsuit Against WWE
Posted on June 1st, 2012 by Cassidy
PWInsider.com is reporting that WWE has filed a motion requesting a conference on Monday to discuss several issues about the lawsuit that TNA filed against them last week. The court agreed and the conference will take place this coming Monday in Nashville.
Even though the court has allowed a temporary restraining order and expedited discovery, both the WWE and TNA have been unable to agree to the order, location, and dates for the depositions. WWE has mentioned that one of the individuals scheduled to be deposed, John Laurinaitis, is scheduled for “previously advertised and committed television appearances” in the United States and Spain next week and on June 11, which is the date of the temporary injunction hearing.
WWE also stated that they were concerned that they will be “unable to adequately prepare” for the hearing on June 11 and will not be able to follow the expedited discovery order without “considerable inconvenience and expense” given the deadlines.
It is certainly worth noting that TNA’s other target in the lawsuit, Brian Wittenstein, has not responded to the court and has not had anyone file the necessary paperwork saying they will represent him in the case.
