WWE Loses Broad Lawsuit To Ban Sale of Fake Merchandise
WWE have lost a lawsuit that would have banned anyone from selling WWE merchandise within a five mile radius of the Superdome, in New Orleans. At past events the company have had issues with people selling fake items to fans attending Wrestlemania weekend and filed the lawsuit to clamp down on the activity.
However the judge said their demands were far too broad and breached people’s right to due process.
The Hollywood Reporter has quotes from the judge:
Does due process allow the Court to deputize a plaintiff to determine which goods are seizable, all while cloaking Plaintiff in the protection of a judicial order?
The problem with Plaintiff’s request is apparent once one recalls that the order it requests is not directed against a single named, identified, or even described person—all the defendants are John Does, and Plaintiff provides no particular information about the identity of any of them. At best, Plaintiff defines Defendants almost tautologically: Defendants are anyone who would be a proper defendant within broad geographic and temporal limits.
