In an update on the lawsuit filed against World Wrestling Entertainment and Thaddeus Bullard (aka WWE superstar Titus O’Neil) by cameraman Donald Anderson, who alleged that he was injured by Bullard during the filming of the WWE Network series Swerved, WWE filed a motion on April 27th in the United States District Court Middle District of Florida seeking to have the company dismissed as a defendant in the lawsuit.

WWE are arguing that the courts in Florida hold no jurisdiction over the company, as they are not headquartered there. Bullard meanwhile, has not yet filed a response to the lawsuit before the court in Florida, but had successfully lobbied for the lawsuit to be moved from the State of California to the State of Florida, where he resides.

For those unfamiliar with the case, Anderson is suing both WWE and Bullard for Battery, Assault, Willful Misconduct, Negligence, Gross Negligence, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress and Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress, claiming that he has faced “bodily injury, pain and suffering, mental anguish, extreme emotional distress, disfigurement, medical expenses, physical handicap, loss of income, loss of the capacity for enjoyment of life and loss of ability to earn money.”
