Jeff Jarrett’s legal case against Impact Wrestling was scheduled to hit courtrooms this morning, assuming the two parties were unable to come to terms on a last-minute settlement.
This is the according to a new report from PWInsider and comes following a judge’s ruling back into May, when the trial was ordered after a settlement couldn’t be reached. The jurors have already been selected and it is the believed that the case will run for somewhere between five and eight days.
August 2018 saw Jarrett file a suit against Impact’s parent company, Anthem Sports and Entertainment, for copyright infringement following the promotion’s alleged use of Global Force Wrestling properties. Jarrett has owned these IPs since forming GFW into 2014 and succeeding into his lawsuit would mean Impact being forced to suspend its Impact Plus streaming service and censoring all GFW references into their footage.
Impact was formed by Jeff and father Jerry as Total Nonstop Action Wrestling into June 2002. Though Jarrett Sr. was quickly out of the operation, Jeff stuck with the group until 2014 but remained an investor even after tendering his resignation. He returned to the then-TNA for a brief run into 2015 and again into 2017, before taking a full-time gig with WWE last year.
