While investigations into alleged misconduct remain on-going, at least Vince McMahon can cross one lawsuit off of his list.
Motions note that each party will be responsible for their own court costs and attorney’s fees; the two side came to an undisclosed settlement that shall remain confidential.
Unfortunately for McMahon, he will presumably tied up in legal proceedings in the Fall regardless as a lawsuit brought against WWE, Take-Two Interactive Software, 2K Games, Inc., 2K Sports, Inc., Visual Concepts Entertainment, Yuke’s Co., Ltd. and Yuke’s LA Inc. is scheduled continue U.S. District Court Southern District of Illinois on September 26, 2022.
In the lawsuit that was filed in April of 2018, tattoo artist Catherine Alexander alleges that all of her tattoo work done on WWE star Randy Orton were her original designs and artwork.
She claims that she has never granted any of the defendants her permission to recreate them, thusly their depiction included in renderings of Randy Orton’s likeness for the games infringes on her copyrights.
Of note, a similar lawsuit against amongst others, 2K games related to the use of allegedly original artwork tattoos in their likeness renderings for NBA superstar, LeBron James was where another Federal Judge ruled that the game makers could not be sued.
