JARRETT, GFW VS. IMPACT WRESTLING TRIAL SET FOR NEXT MONTH AFTER SETTLEMENT DISCUSSIONS FAIL

By Mike Johnson on 2020-05-25 23:56:00

There was an attempt to resolve the lawsuit Jeff Jarrett and his company Global Force Entertainment (parent company of Global Force Wrestling) brought against Anthem Wrestling, the parent company of Impact Wrestling on 5/15, PWInsider.com has confirmed.

After being ordered by the Tennessee Middle District Court court to enter mediation last month, the two parties attempted to negotiate a settlement agreement that would have prevented going to trial but were unable to do so.  Jarrett attended the mediation in person while Anthem Wrestling President Ed Nordholm appeared via teleconference as he is in Canada and unable to enter the United States.

Currently, the trial to resolve the lawsuit is set to begin on Tuesday 6/30 at 9 AM local time with the court noting that the "trial date is realistic notwithstanding COVID-19, and the parties shall anticipate going forward on that date."  The trial is expected to last 5-7 days, unless the two sides come to a settlement before the trial.   There has been a flurry of activity over the last six weeks in regard to the lawsuit as all sides must submit their exhibits and witnesses by 6/12.
