A former employee of Nashville-based Total Nonstop Action Entertainment Inc. has agreed to return a flash drive containing trade secrets, according to Davidson County Chancery Court documents.
Davidson County Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle granted a permanent injunction Monday against Brian Wittenstein, who agreed to give back the information that included terms of TNA contracts with professional wrestlers.
But TNA still has matters to settle with WWE — who they claim used the information provided by Wittenstein to attempt to lure Ric Flair, one of their popular wrestlers.
The WWE maintains they immediately notified TNA and fired Wittenstein after they discovered the breach. But TNA claims that three weeks passed before WWE took any action.
Court dates have not been set to discuss the claims of contract interference with WWE.
