Oliver Luck’s Lawsuit Against Vince McMahon Gets Pushed Back

It looks like the lawsuit between Oliver Luck and Vince McMahon has been pushed back a week. This is based on new court filings today.

“Plaintiff Oliver Luck respectfully moves, on consent, for an extension of time to file his reply memorandum of law in further support of his Motion (ECF No. 82) requesting that this Court certify its Ruling and Order on Motion for Prejudgment Remedy and Motion for Disclosure of Assets, dated June 26, 2020, for interlocutory appeal pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1292(b) (“Motion to Certify”). Specifically, Plaintiff seeks a one-week extension of time to file his reply, from the current deadline of August 5, 2020, to August 12, 2020.”

One reason for the extension is Luck’s attorneys are involved in another high profile case. Then there is this reason.

“Further, compelling circumstances warranting an extension of time arose during the three days before the current deadline. Plaintiff has been engaged in negotiations with counsel for Alpha Entertainment, LLC (“Alpha”) for an agreed order for relief from the automatic stay in the Delaware Bankruptcy Court to join Alpha as a nominal defendant to this lawsuit.

An agreed order for relief from the stay would moot the need to certify the Order on Motion for Prejudgment Remedy and Motion for Disclosure of Assets for interlocutory appeal. While it was originally anticipated that those negotiations would be resolved prior to the current deadline for Plaintiff to file his reply, it is now anticipated that these negotiations may extend past that deadline.

These ongoing negotiations to finalize an agreed order for relief from the stay are compelling circumstances warranting an extension of time because the agreed order would save both the parties and the Court time and resources that would otherwise be expended resolving the Motion to Certify.”

The issue is since the XFL sale is pending, they need to pause the proceedings between Luck and McMahon. It should be noted, that in the sale of the XFL, there is a line that says the following.

“The Buyer shall have no liability, whatsoever, in connection with Oliver
Luck’s claims against the Debtor or Mr. McMahon.”

All of this has XFL fans asking. Will Oliver Luck return to the XFL in its 3.0 version. The word we are hearing is that it is unlikely. But never say never. It would be nice to see Luck finish what he started.
