Report: WWE racial discrimination lawsuit ‘resolved amicably’

A former WWE writer’s lawsuit against the company has been “resolved amicably, according to F4WOnline.

Britney Abrahams had filed a lawsuit against Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, WWE and several members of the creative team this past April, alleging she was terminated after objecting to multiple instances of “offensively racist and stereotypical jargon” used in WWE scripts intended for storylines.

This past August, Abrahams voluntarily dismissed the case against the individual defendants, but not against WWE itself. The cases were then all dismissed “without prejudice,” meaning she would be able to re-file her suit at a later time. 

F4WOnline and Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics reported that Abrahams had voluntarily dismissed the case against WWE as well and has done so “with prejudice,” meaning she is not able to re-file later. Furthermore, it was noted Abrahams requested that the claims she previously dismissed “without prejudice” now be deemed as “with prejudice” by the court.  

The report from F4WOnline also further notes when reached for comment, a lawyer representing Abrahams responded that the matter has been “resolved amicably.” 

Plaintiff BRITNEY ABRAHAMS, by and through her attorneys, THE COCHRAN FIRM, hereby gives notice that the above-captioned action (and all claims contained therein) is voluntarily dismissed with prejudice in its entirety. Plaintiff further gives notice of her request that the claims previously dismissed on August 17, 2023 without prejudice be now deemed dismissed with prejudice. Each party shall bear that party’s own attorney’s fees and costs. Dismissal is proper under this section because no party has yet answered the complaint in this matter.
