McMahon Family To Be Deposed In Concussion Lawsuit



Judge Vanessa L. Bryant ruled on Thursday that Stephanie McMahon-Levesque will be deposed in the ongoing WWE lawsuit involving WWE’s alleged lack of protection when it came to performer’s health. Former WWE star Vito Lo Grasso and former WWE developmental talent Evan Singleton filed the lawsuit against the company. The lawsuit focuses on concussions, CTE, and other head-trauma-related injuries.

Attorneys for WWE argued that the Plaintiffs had not given any legitimate reason for Stephanie to be deposed. Judge Bryant ruled the following:

WWE made Levesque available previously to testify before Congress on issues related to the safety of its wrestlers. Although the Court rejected Plaintiff’s fraudulent misrepresentation claims on the basis of that testimony, WWE has not demonstrated that Levesque is not an appropriate deponent on the issues of whether WWE had a duty, and whether that duty was breached, to disclose knowledge of long-term health risks caused by repeated head trauma. The parties are ordered to work cooperatively to schedule a deposition based on the witness’ availability, which may be conducted up to fourteen days after the current discovery deadline.

Dr. Joseph Maroon, who is the head of WWE’s Wellness Policy, was already deposed on May 20th. Vince McMahon will be deposed as part of the lawsuit on May 27th, and Paul “Triple H” Levesque will be deposed on May 31st.
