Update On TNA Wrestling’s Lawsuit Against WWE

- The following article was written by The Associated Press:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Lawyers for World Wrestling Entertainment have told a Nashville judge the company has not and will not use confidential information from rival Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.

The pledge came during a hearing over a lawsuit TNA filed last month against WWE, claiming WWE had obtained secret contract information in an attempt to poach TNA’s wrestlers.

Attorneys for WWE told Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle that the company has not contacted any of TNA’s contracted personnel. The attorneys also said WWE has returned the only copies of the confidential information to TNA.

Lyle dissolved a May 24 temporary restraining order against WWE that had prohibited it from using the information to solicit TNA wrestlers, but she made no ruling on the merits of the case.

TNA is based in Nashville.

    So, basically she ruled in favor of WWE without actually ruling in favor of them.
