Zuffa v. Couture Preliminary Injunction Ruling Expected Today

February 28, 2008

I have a new piece up at Sherdog.com previewing today’s hearing in Zuffa v. Couture with a look at both sides briefs and the back story of the IFL incident, as well as details on the role Couture’s promotional contract is playing in the proceeding, plus a look at Couture’s motion to dismiss several claims in the case. The lead:

Months of verbal sparring between Zuffa and Randy Couture (Pictures) should have some resolution late Thursday afternoon. In front of Judge Jennifer Togliatti, in Nevada District Court, Zuffa is seeking a preliminary injunction preventing Couture from “engaging in any promotion or production of any events or programming related to unarmed combat during the one-year Restricted Period in his Employment Agreement.” This includes, but is not limited to, the use of Couture’s likeness by the IFL and his participation in this Friday’s IFL event in Las Vegas.
