VINCE MCMAHON: Vince McMahon settles multi-million dollar litigation with former referee Rita Chatterton


Posted on 1/19/123 by Colin Vassallo



After he continuously refused the
settle, WWE Executive Chairman Vince
McMahon has agreed to a multi million-
dollar legal settlement with former
referee Rita Chatterton according to the
Wall Street Journal.

Chatterton accused McMahon of rape in
the back of a limousine in 1986 and then
requested $11.75 million in damages in a
letter sent to McMahon’s attorney back
in November.

“Ms. Chatterton agreed to a lesser
amount in the millions of dollars, one
of the people familiar with the matter
said, but the Journal couldn’t determine
the exact figure,” the WSJ wrote.

McMahon’s attorney, Jerry McDevitt, told
the WSJ that Vince denies and has always
denied raping Chatterton and settled the
case simply to avoid the cost of
litigation.

Chatterton’s attorney John Clune and WWE
didn’t respond to WSJ’s request for
comments.

The former WWE referee was able to
legally go after the WWE Chairman after
New York recently opened a one-year
window that allow victims of sex crimes
to file lawsuits which otherwise would
have been barred by the statue of
limitations.
