Update on Martha Hart’s lawsuit against WWE
It appears the recent case brought by Martha Hart (the late widow of Owen Hart) against World Wrestling Entertainment over the company releasing footage of Owen is moving forward. Martha is also seeking royalties on what has already been released. WWE and Martha attempted to settle the case out of court, but efforts were unsuccessful. WWE has filed a motion for January to dismiss the case, reports the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Martha is no longer attempting to stop WWE from using Owen footage in future releases, but is now focused on preventing WWE from using the name Owen Hart on DVD covers or to promote professional wrestling.
