Ann Callis, a partner in the Holland Law Firm, who is one of
Janel Grant’s attorneys, issued a statement following the
filing of the lawsuit against Vince McMahon, John
Laurinaitis, and WWE today.
“Today’s complaint seeks to hold accountable two WWE
executives who sexually assaulted and trafficked Plaintiff
Janel Grant, as well as the organization that facilitated or
turned a blind eye to the abuse and then swept it under the
rug,” Callis said.
“She is an incredibly private and courageous person who has
suffered deeply at the hands of Mr. McMahon and Mr.
Laurinaitis. Ms. Grant hopes that her lawsuit will prevent
other women from being victimized,” she continued.
Callis, who was the first woman Chief Judge in Madison
County, said that WWE was well aware of Mr. McMahon’s
history of depraved behavior, and it’s time that they take
responsibility for the misconduct of its leadership.
