Jeff Jarrett And Anthem Settle Lawsuit

At long last, it's over. 

Law 360 reports Jeff Jarrett and IMPACT Wrestling parent company Anthem have reached a settlement in their trademark case.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed. 

The brief filing with the court Friday told the judge that if "the terms of the settlement are met, and unless any party objects, they will submit a joint request for dismissal of the claims and counterclaims in the case by no later than Oct 1, 2022."

Jarrett and Global Force Entertainment filed the initial lawsuit in August 2018 with Jarrett claiming Anthem violated state and federal trademark infringes relating to GFE and Jarrett by continuing to use GFW Amped footage, which IMPACT admitted to deleting the master tapes of, without permission after a merger between Anthem and GFE failed to materialize.

Anthem filed a countersuit in July 2019, arguing that they were the rightful owner of the Jeff Jarrett copyright, that Jarrett and GWE granted Anthem a license to use the name and assets and that they have “acted at all times in compliance with its obligations to maintain that trademark registration."

The two sides have gone back-and-forth with a mistrial being declared in July 2020. A settlement conference between the two sides was ordered in August and Jarrett's request for a new trial was denied in October.
