According to PWInsider.com, earlier this afternoon in a Nashville Chancery Court, TNA filed a legal response to Billy Corgan’s lawsuit. The response documents remain sealed, but the report noted 12 pieces of material were submitted to support a defense argument TNA is making regarding the proof of solvency, which was originally published in a 2007 article in The Business Lawyer. As noted, Billy Corgan previously claimed TNA is insolvent, which in legal jargon means a person or persons has ceased to pay its debts in the ordinary course of business, or cannot pay its debts as they become due, or is insolvent within the meaning of the Bankruptcy Code. TNA will attempt to use the 2007 Business Lawyer article about proof of solvency as precedent in the case, as Dixie Carter is claiming the company is not insolvent.
Furthermore, PWInsider is reporting Billy Corgan’s lawyers will file a redacted version of their lawsuit tomorrow at around 3pm. The lawsuit will be redacted as Corgan feels there are details in the lawsuit that should not be made public, as they could be harmful to TNA if discovered by competitors.
It’s being said any chance of a settlement in the case will hinge on what transpires in the next twenty-four hours, to prevent Corgan’s allegations against TNA from becoming public record.
