In 2014 Colt Cabana and CM Punk released a podcast detailing the former WWE Champion’s departure from the promotion. During the podcast, Punk alleged he was mistreated by one of WWE’s doctors, Chris Amann, who followed up by filing a lawsuit against Cabana and Punk.
Punk allegedly told Cabana that his own lawyers would handle the situation, however, there seems to have been a misunderstanding between the two. Cabana says he lost over $200,000 in legal fees, fees he thought Punk and his legal team would cover. Cabana then launched a lawsuit against Punk, the first being dismissed before he filed yet another one in December.
PWInsider reports Punk has now filed a motion to dismiss the second lawsuit as well. The motion was filed in the Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois. Punk’s motion suggests Cabana’s second lawsuit should be dismissed because the “conclusory allegations” won’t legally hold up. Also, Cabana didn’t file amended claims in the second suit.
Punk also claims that he spent over $1 million in defending himself and Cabana in the lawsuit against Amann. Cabana and his legal team have been given until January 25th to respond to Punk’s motion. In turn, Punk would then have until February 19th to respond, and a status conference would be held the following day.
What do you think about Punk attempting to dismiss Cabana’s second lawsuit?
