Phoenix Lawyer, George E. Mueller Represents Plaintiffs in WWE Lawsuit
Accident and personal injury lawyer George E. Mueller of Mueller Law Group, P.A. in Phoenix, Arizona and Hartley Bernstein of Bernstein Cherney in New York City have filed a lawsuit against World Wrestling Entertainment and its star “Big Show” (Paul Wight Jr.).
The suit was filed in the Maricopa County Superior Court in Phoenix, Arizona on behalf of a WWE road producer. The producer’s job was to do post-match interviews with wrestlers which were posted to the WWE website. The producer was supposed to interview Big Show after his January 27, 2013 match in Phoenix.
The lawsuit alleges that Big Show initially refused to do the interview. Then, after the producer told him that WWE wanted Big Show to be interviewed, Big Show went toward the producer enraged, shouting obscenities, and waving his fist in the producer’s face. Big Show then grabbed him by the collar and throat, striking him in the face and backing him up against a trunk while declaring “You son of a bitch … Are you having fun right now … Don’t ever come up to me again … I don’t give a shit who you are …”
The attack was videotaped and posted on the internet until January 29, 2013 attracting more than 100,000 viewers.
Attorney George E. Mueller became involved in the WWE lawsuit because of his exceptional reputation with personal injury suits.
George E. Mueller is a former assistant prosecutor and is a skilled advocate in negotiation, mediation and arbitration settings, in addition to being an experienced and aggressive trial lawyer.
