VINCE MCMAHON LAWSUIT: Janel Grant pauses lawsuit against McMahon as U.S. Justice Department investigates

Posted on 5/30/124 by Colin Vassallo

Former WWE employee Janel Grant, who is suing Vince McMahon,
John Laurinaitis, and WWE, has agreed to pause her lawsuit
at the request of the U.S. Justice Department as the
government conducts its own investigation according to a new
story by Bloomberg.

The pause is for six months according to someone familiar
with the case.

“Ms. Grant has consented to a request by the US Attorney for
the Southern District of New York to stay her case against
Mr. McMahon, WWE and Mr. Laurinaitis, pursuant to a pending
non-public investigation,” Grant’s attorney Ann Callis said
in a statement today. “We will cooperate with all
appropriate next steps.”

All the defendants are denying the claims.

The lawsuit has led to the departure of Vince McMahon from
his role as Executive Chairman of TKO Group Holdings, ending
his long association with WWE once and for all.
