John Laurinaitis files statement of material facts regarding Janel Grant’s lawsuit

Former WWE Executive John Laurinaitis has filed a statement of material facts regarding Janel Grant’s lawsuit against him, WWE, and Vince McMahon.

Back on May 30, Grant agreed to pause her litigation in response to a request by the United States Attorney’s office pending a non-public investigation. However, on June 8, Laurinaitis’ legal team filed a document listing three facts in support of the motion to send Grant’s lawsuit for private arbitration. His legal team also stated that Laurinaitis believed he was a “released party” of any lawsuits brought on by Grant due to her Non-Disclosure agreement with WWE and Vince McMahon.

Laurinaitis filed a motion in support of sending the lawsuit to arbitration in a filing that was done last month. He had previously claimed through his lawyers that he was also a victim of McMahon in regards to the allegations made by Grant. 

Laurinaitis’ filing reads as follows:

“I, John Laurinaitis, declare under penalty of perjury as

At all times material to the allegations set forth in the Complaint, I was an employee of World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc.

As a full-time employee of WWE, it is my understanding that I was listed as a released party from any and all lawsuits or causes of action by Plaintiff Grant.

Pursuant to the terms of the Confidential Settlement Agreement, General Release, and Covenant Not to Sue (Dkt. 30-2) it is my understanding that the sole and exclusive legal method to resolve any disputes related to the Confidential Settlement Agreement would be in binding arbitration under the Federal Arbitration Act.”
