There has been a recent development in the lawsuit filed by Marvin Jackson over a hearing loss suffered at WWE WrestleMania 38.

As you may know, Jackson filed a lawsuit over the injury he suffered due to pyrotechnics at WrestleMania 38, which was dismissed back in May 2023 after the Honorable Court agreed to WWE’s motion that the matter be moved to arbitration. Jackson filed an appeal soon after.

Pwinsider is reporting that the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit has upheld the previous decision and the lawsuit was ordered back into the arbitration process.

Jackson alleged that he had lost hearing due to pyrotechnics at WrestleMania 38, where he was an “invitee.”

WWE had argued that fans had to check boxes before buying tickets online agreeing to the terms and provisions including agreements to enter arbitration over legal problems.

While Jackson maintained he had never agreed to the terms and conditions requiring arbitration by WWE as he was not the purchaser of the tickets to the event, the court agreed with WWE on the matter and dismissed the suit with prejudice, which means that the lawsuit cannot be re-filed in the same court.

Jackson sued WWE for hearing loss suffered from pyrotechnics at the event and sought over $1,000,000 in relief, including all damages, penalties, costs, expenses, prejudgment interest, and attorney’s fees.
