Report: Update On Jeff Jarrett's Lawsuit Against Anthem Sports & Entertainment

An update on the legal battle.

Last month it was reported by PWInsider that founder of IMPACT Wrestling Jeff Jarrett filed an amended lawsuit against Anthem Sports and Entertainment who own a large stake in IMPACT. The initial report entailed that Anthem came to Jeff Jarrett in 2016 about a partnership in-which the two sides agreed to merge Global Force Entertainment with Anthem and that would have made Jarrett a Chief Creative Officer and given him equity in Anthem Sports.

Jarrett claimed that he was terminated by Anthem and the agreement between the two parties was never finalized which means that Anthem were not allowed to use any of the GFW 'Amped' content that is under the name of Jarrett's 'Global Force Entertainment. 

In another update from PWInsider, representatives of Anthem requested that Jarrett's lawsuit be dismissed because Jarrett is claiming that there is copyright infringement on the GFW 'Amped' content but there were not actual copyrights filed on it prior to this lawsuit. In regards to Jarrett claiming that Anthem violated his exclusive property and rights to his own name, Anthem responded by saying that those claims are not true because Jarrett has authorized the use of his own name as a trademark and Anthem owns that trademark.
