WWE dismisses lawsuit against US Citizenship and Immigration Services

Back on January 26th, Martine G. Cuomo, an immigration attorney, filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court of Connecticut against US Citizenship and Immigration Services on the behalf of WWE.

The court documents showed the nature of the lawsuit was sealed to the public. At the time, there was speculation that the reason for the lawsuit was due to WWE not being able to get talent into the United States to work.

Just a few months later, it was revealed the company has dismissed the lawsuit. According to the court records obtained by, WWE filed a voluntary dismissal with the United States District Court District of Connecticut. It happened on March 10th.

On January 27th, the case was given to District Judge Michael P. Shea, who sits in Hartford, CT. Court records indicate an electronic summons was also issued on the same day for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. They were required to answer within 60 days.

Because of specific court records being sealed, there’s no word on if a settlement was reached.
