The latest on WWE Doctor Chris Amann Libel/Slander lawsuit against Phil “CM Punk” Brooks and Colt Cabana, which is from comments Punk made during an appearance on Colt Cabana’s “Art of Wrestling” podcast last November about Amann’s treatment of Punk while in WWE, is that the lawyers for Colton and Brooks have filed a motion to throw the case out.
According to their lawyers, the case should be thrown out due to the claim in the case of Colton being that he was acting as a media member doing an interview, and in the case of Brooks, that he never specifically named the doctor who was mistreating him.
In the interview, Punk never named Amman, but rather referred him as “Doc,” without mentioning an actual name.
The judge ruled that the case would continue and ordered both sides to go into “discovery.”
