EXCLUSIVE: JERRY McDEVITT ON ATTEMPT TO RESURRECT CTE-WWE LAWSUIT

By Mike Johnson on 2021-02-18 21:09:00

PWInsider.com contacted WWE attorney Jerry McDevitt for comment on today's filing attempting to have the dismissed WWE concussion lawsuit resurrected.

McDevitt's response:

"[Konstantine Kyros] has no automatic right to appeal to the Supreme Court. He has to ask them to accept an appeal, and that is what he filed. The large majority of requests are denied, and the Supreme Court typically takes cases presenting some issue of national import where the courts in the various federal circuits differ on some specific issue of federal law.  

Here, Kyros is asking the Supreme Court to reverse the Second Circuit decision that he filed an appeal too late in the cases of Billy Jack Haynes, Russ McCullough, Matthew Wiese, Ryan Sakoda and Nelson Frazier.

He is not attempting to have them hear the dismissals of all the other cases, which are now over for good.  The lower courts threw those cases out on the basis of state law, which the Supreme  Court would not touch. 

It is an exercise in futility, because even the Supreme Court were to hear his request and find that his appeal on behalf of those five was timely, he would still lose on the merits because their claims are all barred by statute of limitations. In short, a waste of time and money which we don’t think will go anywhere. 

He will, however, have to face a sanctions hearing next month on how much he has to pay WWE."
