According to a source, lawsuit between two Motor Coach companies that featured Triple H, Stephanie McMahon-Levesque and World Wrestling Entertainment named as third party defendants over a coach bus that was to be specifically created and designed for their family to use on the road was settled out of court on March 11th. The case was dismissed with prejudice. This means that the sides cannot bring another actionable claim against the other.
Back in January of 2010, the plaintiff, Music City Coach, alleged that they were hired by defendant Star City Coach, LTD. to create a specified coach bus for the Levesque family. There were allegedly issues with the payments from Star's side with over $216,000 still owed to Music City. According to the suit, the total cost of the coach's modifications were $325,000.
Triple H and Stephanie McMahon-Levesque are involved because Music City alleged that a Star City employee, Terry Sims, who had been assigned to drive the family's coach, made statements he was working as the Levesques' "agent" while passing along orders of specifications for the coach bus by the family. The lawsuit claimed that Sims "represented himself to Star City as an agent of the Levesques and the Levesques never indicated he was not acting on their authority despite numerous meetings between Star City representatives and the Levesques." The suit also claims that the Levesques were acting "as agents" for World Wrestling Entertainment, which is how WWE as a company was dragged into the suit. When the payments were not made for the coach, US Marshals seized it. Star City claimed the Levesque family and WWE were liable for the balance owed at the time, $216,666.66.
The terms of the settlement were sealed but based on the legal proceedings; it appears the settlement was between the two primary parties and not anyone from the Levesque or WWE's end of things.
