After having his initial lawsuit dismissed, Colt Cabana filed yet another against CM Punk in December. PWInsider reports that Punk filed the suit in the Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois. The motion suggests that Cabana’s second suit should be dismissed because the “conclusory allegations” won’t legally hold up, and Cabana’s new suit doesn’t include any amended claims.
The entire situation began back in 2014 with a podcast the pair did. They discussed why CM Punk decided to leave WWE. Punk alleged he was mistreated by WWE doctor Chris Amann. Amann responded by suing both Punk and Cabana. Punk had allegedly told Cabana that he and his lawyers would handle the situation. But it appears there was miscommunication between the two because Cabana lost over $200,000 in legal fees. Cabana launched a lawsuit against Punk in an attempt to get the fees back.
However, Punk claims he spent over $1 million defending himself and Cabana against Amann. His first lawsuit was dismissed, and now Punk is attempting to do the same to the second. Cabana and his legal team have until January 25th to respond. Punk will then get until February 19th to respond, and a status conference would be held the following day.
