A new trial date is set in the lawsuit filed over Randy Orton’s tattoos appeared in the WWE 2K games. As previously reported, the long-delayed trial filed by tattoo artist Catherine Alexander’s lawsuit against WWE, Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc., 2K Games, Inc., 2K Sports, Inc., Visual Concepts Entertainment, Yuke’s Co., Ltd. and Yuke’s LA Inc. was postponed again earlier this month due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to PWInsider, the U.S. District Court Southern District of Illinois has set a new date of January 31sth, 2022 for the trial.

A judge ruled in September of last year that WWE and Take-Two had copied five of Alexander’s original designs that she holds valid trademarks on but denied a summary judgment for Alexander, sending the case toward a jury trial.
