Sports entertainment mogul Vince McMahon and the former head of one of his companies, the football league XFL, have settled an $11.1 million legal feud in Connecticut federal court that sprang from the league's allegedly poor leadership ahead of its 2020 bankruptcy.
Sports entertainment tycoon Vince McMahon lost his bid to escape claims from the former commissioner of the XFL involving efforts to claw back $11.1 million of his salary in bankruptcy court, with a Connecticut judge saying the fired executive adequately pled claims under his employment contract.
Sports entertainment tycoon Vince McMahon wants a Connecticut federal court to drop him from a bankruptcy proceeding related to the implosion of the XFL, arguing the former commissioner and CEO of the extreme football league, Oliver Luck, is not entitled to protection as the Chapter 11 administrator tries to claw back $11.1 million of his pay.
