Per Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, court filings show that a waiver of summons dated March 15 for Vince McMahon, and WWE appeared on the docket, which was the same date for the waiver of summons for Laurinaitis. The filings note that McMahon, WWE, and Laurinaitis have 60 days to respond, so the deadline is May 14.
