Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Against WWE & Linda McMahon



The following is from The Associated Press:

 

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) – A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by the widow of a World Wrestling Entertainment performer against Linda McMahon, the company’s former chief executive who is running for U.S. Senate in Connecticut.

 

Martha Hart sued WWE and McMahon in 2010 during her first run for the Senate. Hart said the company used the image of her late husband, Owen Hart, in videos and other materials without her permission and despite her objections.

 

Owen Hart died in a televised 1999 stunt.

 

Judge Stefan Underhill last week dismissed the claims against McMahon and most claims against WWE. He said the company retained a right to Hart’s wrestling career.

 

The judge denied the company’s motion to dismiss a claim related to personal family photos, but said there was no evidence McMahon knew about the photos.
