WWE is being hit with yet another investigation on top of the one that came out yesterday regarding the allegations involving Vince McMahon.
A press release was sent out today via Business Wire from Scott+Scott Attorneys LLP stating the firm is “investigating whether certain directors and officers of World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc breached their fiduciary duties to WWE and its shareholders”.
This is separate from the investigation specifically into the Vince McMahon allegations that came to light yesterday, which is being conducted by WWE’s board of directors under the oversight of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP.
The full press release from Scott+Scott Attorneys LLP is as follows:
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP (“Scott+Scott”), a national securities and consumer rights litigation firm, is investigating whether certain directors and officers of World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (“WWE”) (NYSE: WWE) breached their fiduciary duties to WWE and its shareholders. If you are a WWE shareholder, you are encouraged to contact attorney Joe Pettigrew for additional information at (844) 818-6982, or email@example.com.
