The lawsuit filed by Janel Grant against Vince McMahon, WWE, and John Laurinaitis has been temporarily paused due to a federal investigation. Judge Jeffrey A. Meyer has officially put the case on hold for 6 months as the investigation continues.

On May 30, Grant agreed to pause the lawsuit, allowing the federal investigation to proceed without interference. The decision means the case will remain inactive until the conclusion of the six-month period.

A spokesperson for McMahon commented on the situation to Wrestlenomics, stating, “Mr. McMahon is eager to prove Ms. Grant’s claims are false and expose her lies, but did not object to the government’s request to pause the matter in connection with the investigation regarding disclosures at WWE.

Following the six-month stay, when his legal team is able to get discovery and depose Ms. Grant and others, the evidence will show the relationship was consensual and Ms. Grant’s allegations are malicious fabrications of a jilted lover.”

During the pause, the motion to compel arbitration by the defendants has been denied “without prejudice,” which means the motions can be renewed when the case resumes. Additionally, Grant’s motion to strike a portion of McMahon’s earlier filing was denied as moot.

The defendants argued that the dispute should move to private arbitration, citing details in the nondisclosure agreement signed by Grant and McMahon in January 2022.

In February, the Wall Street Journal reported that McMahon was under federal investigation for $exual assault and $ex trafficking. Grant filed her lawsuit against McMahon, WWE, and Laurinaitis on January 25, bringing significant attention to the case.

As the federal investigation progresses, the future of the lawsuit remains uncertain, with the next steps likely to unfold once the six-month pause concludes.
