Former WWE manager Tammy Sytch was charged with one count of DUI manslaughter following a three-car-accident when Sytch rear-ended a vehicle on traffic stop. That legal situation is ongoing for the Original Diva.

The driver, Julian Lasseter, died after sustaining multiple injuries from the crash. Sytch and her boyfriend, James Pente, were later sued by Lasseter’s family. Sytch then was arrested in May after it was revealed that her blood alcohol level was 3 1/2 times over the legal limit. Although Sytch was charged with one count of manslaughter, it looks as if Sytch has found a way to end the civil case against her.

According to PW Insider, Sytch and her team has filed for a motion to dismiss the civil lawsuit case brought forward by Lasseter’s love ones. Sytch’s legal team is arguing that because the victim’s daughter is not properly appointed as representative of the victim’s estate, she does not have the legal authority to file suit under Florida Statue 768.20.

The motion was filed two weeks on June 2. The legal team representing the victim’s daughter has since responded, claiming that past rulings from the Supreme Court of Florida would make her a properly appointed representative.


The victim’s family are seeking $100 million in damages. Sytch’s boyfriend ended up making a statement to the Daytona Beach News-Journal. He declined to comment on any potential plea deal. Sytch meanwhile has pleaded not guilty the day before filing to dismiss the lawsuit.
