WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler has filed a lawsuit against the town of Hardeman County, Tennessee one year after the death of his son, former WWE Superstar Brian Christopher Lawler (A.K.A. "Grandmaster Sexay").
The following statement was issued in a press release by Rosenblum & Reisman, Attorneys at Law, courtesy of F4WOnline.com/The Wrestling Observer Newsletter:
"Jerry Lawler filed a lawsuit on Friday, July 26, 2019 seeking justice for Brian Lawler's family. Lawler is seeking compensatory damages and punitive damages in an amount to be determined by a jury for the numerous failures of the county and its employees that resulted in the wrongful death of his son, Brian Christopher Lawler. Lawler is also asking the court to order Sheriff Doolen to make changes at the Hardeman County Jail to protect all inmates from future harm."
Since Brian's passing one year ago, Jerry Lawler has publicly expressed doubt over the official ruling that his son's death was the result of suicide.
