WWE loses in big lawsuit involving Randy Orton

Last updated

WWE recently lost in a big lawsuit involving Superstar Randy Orton and the recent WWE 2K games released in recent years.

As confirmed by PWInsider, the jury in the case against 2K Games and the company went in the favour of tattoo artist Catherine Alexander.

“The jury in the trial for the lawsuit tattoo artist Catherine Alexander brought against World Wrestling Entertainment, Take-Two Interactive Software, 2K Games, Inc., 2K Sports, Inc., Visual Concepts Entertainment, Yuke’s Co., Ltd. and Yuke’s LA Inc. before the U.S. District Court Southern District of Illinois officially ruled in favour of Alexander earlier today” the site confirmed.

“It took the jury all of three hours and 26 minutes to come to their decision.  What is not yet known is the level of damages the defendants will be required to pay, nor whether the defendants will attempt to appeal the decision” PWInsider added.

The issue stemmed from 2K and WWE having Orton’s tattoos visible in the games, as Alexander was not receiving any sort of payment for her artwork being used in the 2K titles.

It remains to be seen what the defendants in the case will need to pay out, but we will update on this story when it is revealed.
