Anthem Files Motion Requesting Mistrial In Lawsuit With Jeff Jarrett

Fight forever.

According to Mike Johnson at PWInsider, Anthem has filed a motion requesting a mistrial in its lawsuit against Jeff Jarrett. Jarrett filed a response to determine whether a verdict brought by the jury will stand or if the mistrial will go through and the process will start again.

PWInsider confirmed the following rulings in the trial:

*The jury ruled that Anthem Wrestling Exhibitions, LLC is liable to Plaintiff Global Force Entertainment, Inc. for federal trademark infringement of the registered mark GLOBAL FORCE WRESTLING, violation of the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act, unjust enrichment, negligence, conversion, and federal unfair competition for infringement and Tennessee trademark infringement for usage of the GFW logo.

*The jury ruled that Anthem Wrestling Exhibitions, LLC is liable to Plaintiff Jeffrey Jarrett for violation of the Tennessee Personal Rights Protection Act.

*The jury ruled Anthem Wrestling Exhibitions, LLC was liable for federal trademark infringement of the mark GLOBAL FORCE WRESTLING.

*Anthem Wrestling Exhibitions, LLC is liable for unfair competition for infringing upon the GFW logo.

*Anthem Wrestling Exhibitions, LLC is liable for Tennessee trademark infringement for usage of the GFW logo.

*The jury ruled in favor of Global Force Entertainment, Inc. on its unjust enrichment claim, ruling that Anthem used the GFW content for their own enrichment without having the license to do so.

*The jury ruled that that Anthem Wrestling Exhibitions, LLC was negligent in deleting the original footage of the GFW Amped content.

*Anthem Wrestling Exhibitions, LLC is liable for conversion for its deletion of the original footage of the Amped content.

*However, the jury ruled that Anthem Wrestling Entertainment, LLC’s liability in this action was caused by Jeff Jarrett’s own breach of his fiduciary duty and his duty of loyalty and that Mr. Jarrett is liable to Anthem Wrestling for such breaches, so there may be damages he has to pay to Anthem.

*The jury ruled that Anthem’s conduct against Jarrett/GFW was willful.

The jury has yet to award damages or punitive damages as Anthem is attempting to have everything thrown out.

The lawsuit between Jarrett and Anthem revolves around the usage, and deletion, of the GFW Amped tapes. Jarrett and GWE hit IMPACT and Anthem with a lawsuit in August 2018, suing over copyright infringement pertaining to their use of Jarrett's name and likeness along with their use of GFW Amped content.
