The trial between Jeff Jarrett and Global Force Entertainment against IMPACT parent company Anthem is underway and ongoing in Nashville, TN.
According to Mike Johnson at PWInisder, the only note thus far is that Jarrett and GFW have dropped their claims of Federal Trademark Infringement and Counterfeiting of the GFW brand as well as the allegation that Anthem created Unfair Competition under Tennessee common law by their usage of the GFW brand.
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.
There reportedly was an attempt to resolve the lawsuit with the two parties entering mediation in April. Jarrett attended the mediation in person while Anthem Wrestling President Ed Nordholm appeared via teleconference as he is in Canada and unable to enter the United States. However, discussions to reach a settlement failed, leading to the ongoing trial.
