Update On The TNA vs. WWE Lawsuit

Source: Pwinsider

An injunction was handed down by the Chancery Court of Tennessee against Brian Wittenstein for his alleged role in TNA’s lawsuit against him and WWE. The order was made official after Wittenstein failed to respond to the lawsuit. Wittenstein did supply TNA with a signed statement giving his version of the situation.

Wittenstein has been ordered to return all information he took from TNA via a flash drive after he left his employment there. He must not speak of any TNA information to any third parties (including WWE) and must not breach any of his agreements with TNA.

The original temporary order against WWE was lifted a while back after they proved that there is no digital copy of Wittenstein’s information. The lawsuit continues, though the next step is unclear as of this writing.

    Hmmm..How could they prove no one made a digital copy?

      You would be surprised at what is stored on your hard drive. And formatting doesn't get rid of that stuff either.

      So don't look at porn on your work's computer.

      They can't. But they can only do so much, and the court is looking for them to show that they intend to do the right thing. Anyone could have moved it onto a flash drive, copied it over the Internet via FTP, DropBox, iDrive, etc.

      The best they can do is prove they have made a reasonable effort to remove it. At this point, anyone who wanted to read it would have the finer points committed to memory anyway.

      I feel like I'm "defending" WWE, but I'm really not. Just calling it the way the court is seeing it.

    of course they're real lawsuits if the courts found out it was bs designed for a story line they would be in some trouble for wasting the courts time

    I know no one here has bashed TNA for this suit but since it's happened other places (ie LOP) I wanted to comment. It was a business move, not personal. WWE would have to do the very same thing to protect their interests.
