Update on Dr. Chris Amann vs. CM Punk/Colt Cabana
Jury selection began yesterday in Cook County Court in Illinois for the the civil lawsuit by WWE Dr. Chris Amann against CM Punk and Colt Cabana per PWInsider.com.
The lawsuit, filed in February 2015, claims defamation against Phil “CM Punk” Brooks and Scott “Colt Cabana” Colton over comments made on an episode of the “Art of Wrestling” podcast back in November 2014 when Punk first broke his post-WWE silence.
Amann claims statements made by Brooks and Colton on the podcast were false, defamatory and put him in a false light by improperly insinuating “a lack of integrity … and/or inability or lack of competence to perform his professional duties as a medical doctor.” Punk claimed Amann had falsely diagnosed a lump that “grew to the size of a baseball” and later turned into a staph infection. Punk also claimed Amann failed to treat his concussion symptoms saying that he was only prescribed antibiotics as treatment.
