WWE Attorney Jerry McDevitt Comments on The Nelson Frazier Jr. Wrongful Death Lawsuit

March 17, 2015 | Posted by Larry Csonka

– WWE Attorney Jerry McDevitt recently spoke with The Boston Herald about the wrongful death lawsuit brought against the company by the widow and estate of the late Nelson Frazier Jr. (Mable, Viscera, Big Daddy V). Here is what he had to say…

His Thoughts on The Lawsuit: “It’s an embarrassment to be a lawyer sometimes. It’s ridiculous that someone can … try to blame someone because a gentleman with a weight problem died of a heart attack in the shower eight years after he last performed. It’s ridiculous to try and blame someone for that.”

On The Merits of The Case: “They just ignore these things and allege whatever they feel like alleging. You can’t do that as a lawyer. You have to be basing your allegations on a reasonable investigation of the facts. It’s not some creative writing exercise to see if you can get media attention.”

McDevitt also noted that the company may attempt to get sanctions against attorney Konstantine Kyro, who is also representing Bill jack Haynes, Vito LoGrasso and others in what he describes as “frivolous lawsuits”.
