CM Punk Files Follow-Up Motion To Dismiss Colt Cabana Lawsuit

The latest on the legal battle between Colt Cabana and CM Punk.

According to PWInsider, CM Punk filed a follow-up to his motion to dismiss the amended lawsuit on Feb. 14. As previously reported, Punk filed a motion to dismiss Cabana's lawsuit on Dec. 28.

Punk continues to argue that Cabana has failed to explain, under Illinois law, why his amended lawsuit should be allowed move forward after the initial filing was dismissed. Punk's attorneys claim that Cabana has failed to properly argue why the lawsuit should stand, instead choosing to point back to the allegations in the amended lawsuit. Furthermore, Punk's side claims that the offer from Punk's attorney to continue to represent Cabana after Punk and Cabana had a falling out over the course of Dr. Chris Amann lawsuit would not be a legally enforceable contract that Punk allegedly breached.

Cabana filed a second lawsuit against Punk in December after the court sided with CM Punk on Cabana's original lawsuit. The original lawsuit stated that CM Punk (real name, Phil Brooks) was in breach of contract in regards to paying for Colt Cabana's (real name, Scott Colton) legal costs. 

Judge Daniel J. Kubasiask will rule on the matter by Mar. 15.
