And the winner IS.....



From WWE.com

A U.S. Federal District Court jury in the Nicole Bass sexual harassment lawsuit unanimously exonerated WWE and defendant Steve Lombardi of any wrongdoing. The sexual harassment lawsuit brought by Ms. Bass had no factual foundation and the jury, in its decision, saw that clearly. This was nothing but an attempt to smear WWE's good name in an attempt to make an easy dollar. WWE views today's verdict as vindication of our corporate name and reputation.

" . . . an attempt to smear WWE's good name . . . "

hee hee!

This angle, which has gone from being a "clean" wrestling match to an all-out unsanctioned street fight for bloody revenge is apparently sponsored by the book of Joshua.

Do you mean that WWE actually is a good name for the fed?

Or do you mean that they actually have credibility in the media?

Either way, that's a pretty funny way of putting it.

I think you need to be a female before you sue for sexual harassment.

Now Mr. Bass can go back to making her S&M videos. There's a great career move.

From Newsday's article on same (link via Slashwrestling):

"Juror Cliff Hasey, 44, of Nassau County, appeared to be the only wrestling fan on the jury and said it was tough not being able to ask all the wrestling stars for autographs after they testified. But a smiling Hasey said Lombardi, a former wrestler, autographed his juror pass when the case ended yesterday."

Bass doesn't have unlimited funds, so the case probably dies here.

But given that every other juror quoted (a hideous practice that has become far too common; there are protections in place in California if jurors want to use them) said credibility (lack thereof) was the entire basis for the decision, and there's one guy on the jury who is sitting there by his own admission hungering for the autographs of one side exclusively... . In other circumstances, all jurors would be interviewed for additional signs that the jury was NOT impartial or was possibly lead/unduly influenced by the fan Hasey and/or celebrity status of witnesses for one side. Results of those interviews might very well form the basis for appeal, given that in the Federal system you need just a 2-1 plurality to prevail in civil actions (that's from memory; the key point is that it doesn't have to be unanimous and the number needed is lower than in many state courts).



M. Cole: Oh no, what's Angle going to do with that chair. Tazz: Well, I think he wants to, you know, HIT HIM with it.

I'm loving heel Jericho and his use of the Liontamer, and not the Walls of Jericho. The IC title tourney seems to be going along just fine, which should lead to Morrison/Punk, with Punk winning to move onto Regal and re-ignite that feud.
