More Law Firms Launch Investigations Into WWE Business Practices

0

More law firms are investigating WWE to determine if the company broke any rules with recent actions.

Last week, it was announced that Vince McMahon is under investigation by the Scott+Scott firm over allegations of an affair with an employee and arranged $3 million ‘hush money’ payout.

Days later, it was announced that the Schall Law Firm is investigating WWE’s board and higher-ups to determine if the company mislead investors regarding claims over the alleged affair.

Now, three more firms have launched investigations. They are Rosen Law Firm, Bragar Eagel & Squire, and Labaton Sucharow.


Each of the new investigations is related to McMahon’s alleged affair and argues that WWE not informing their investors of the investigation prior to public knowledge may have been a breach of their rules.


WWE’s investors only learned of the investigation after reading an article for the Wall Street Journal.

You can check out the press releases from all three law firms below:
