Update on lawsuit against Vince McMahon and the XFL
Submitted by Aaron Rift on 05/13/2020 at 06:19 PM


In an update on former XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck suing Vince McMahon and the XFL football league, new court documents revealed that Luck was fired by McMahon for alleged "gross neglect." Here is an excerpt via SportsBusinessDaily.com:

Luck left the XFL’s Connecticut HQ for his home in Indiana on March 13 and “disengage[d] from the XFL’s operations,” according to the filing. McMahon further claims Luck did not inform him of his intentions. “Put simply, at the very moment when his leadership as CEO was needed most, Luck did not devote substantially all of his business time to the XFL, as required by his contract.”

Luck signed Callaway, a former Browns WR, to a draft contract promising a $125,000 signing bonus without informing McMahon, even though he was aware that McMahon asked for final approval rights to any player with a questionable background. The filing continues on that “Luck failed to promptly terminate Callaway in accordance with McMahon’s instructions,” and then Callaway injured his knee in a Tampa Bay Vipers practice, which triggered medical costs and worker’s compensation costs for the startup. “The cost to the XFL of this episode of gross negligence was in excess of six figures,” McMahon’s filing reads.

Luck used his league-issued iPhone for personal matters.
