Concussions – Professional Wrestling Case
Evan Singleton et al. v. World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc., Case No. 3:15-cv-1074-VLB (U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut).
Cuneo Gilbert & LaDuca LLP, along with several other firms, filed cases on behalf of current and former wrestlers who have routinely suffered head trauma through their participation in professional wrestling. The cases, which were ultimately consolidated in the District of Connecticut, allege that these wrestlers have suffered irreversible brain trauma with devastating consequences, due to inadequate care, misleading reassurances and failure to provide important information. The cases seek compensation and resources for the wrestlers’ continuing medical treatment.
After significant and complex motion practice, as well as extensive discovery, the cases currently remain on track for dispositive motion practice and trial.
