The legal battle between Colt Cabana and CM Punk is over.
According to Mike Johnson at PWInsider, the lawsuit between Colt Cabana and CM Punk has been settled. Court documents were filed on Sept. 26 with the Circuit Court of Cook County in Illinois, stating that the lawsuit had been "dismissed with prejudice."
The filing noted that Punk and Cabana jointly filed for the case to be dismissed and that the Court, “having examined said stipulation and being fully advised in the premises, finds that this cause of action has been fully compromised and settled and the parties have stipulated and agreed to the dismissal of the complaint with prejudice, and the court further finds that all costs have been paid.”
Johnson reports that there was no financial settlement involved and that the settlement was based on mutual releases of Punk and Cabana's claims against each other.
Because the case was dismissed with prejudice, neither can file another lawsuit against each other over the matter.
When asked for comment, Cary Stein, Cabana's lawyer, responded to PWInsider with a one-word response via email, writing, "Settled."
Cabana sued Punk in August 2018 for $1.2 million, alleging that Punk agreed to pay for Cabana's legal fees but "suddenly" demanded Cabana pay over $250,000. Cabana accused CM Punk of being the reason he had to seek other legal counsel in the June 2018 trial against WWE doctor Chris Amann.
The latest update was back in June 2019 when Punk filed a counter lawsuit seeking $600,000 in damages. You can look back on the entire legal battle between the two by clicking here.
