Law.com reported today that Stanley Shenker, who was suing WWE for ending his contract with them prematurely, got walloped in court. Stamford Superior Court Judge Chase T. Rogers called Shenker a “serial perjurer” for repeatedly lying during the discovery phase of the trial. Because of his actions, his case was thrown out and WWE won on their counterclaims. The dollar amount will be determined after a hearing on damages. Shenker, who was involved in merchandise sales for WWE, alleged that he was due at least $6.5 million in fees at the time of his firing. In court it came out that Shenker was actually working under the table merchandise deals with James Bell, its then senior vice president of licensing and marketing.
