The lawsuit filed by Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Entertainment (Parent company of Global Force Wrestling) against IMPACT Wrestling’s parent company, Anthem Sports & Media, Inc, has been delayed by the court. According to PWInsider, the trial, which started last week, has now been postponed due to growing concerns of Covid-19.
The trial is set to resume on July 21, 2020 by Chief Judge Waverly D. Crenshaw, Jr. According to to the report, the judge and representatives for both parties will be having a conference call on July 10.
The Jarrett/Anthem lawsuit is over the Global Force Wrestling AMPED master tapes that Anthem acquired during a failed merger between Jarrett’s company and Anthem in 2017. Jarrett alleges that Anthem did not have the authority to air AMPED on Pay-per-view. Anthem also deleted the master copy of the tapes before Jarrett’s Global Force was able to regain ownership of the tapes and copyright the content.
