As noted here on PWInsider.com, TNA filed a lawsuit against Steiner citing breach of contract following his Twitter outbursts ripping on the promotion, Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff and others. Steiner filed a counter-suit, alleging that it was TNA that had breached their contract, citing their failure to provide accounting on royalties owed as well as non-payment of royalties.
TNA filed a motion to dismiss Steiner's suit, claiming that their contracts require a talent to inform them of a breach and allow 30 days to repair it before they attempt any legal maneuvers. TNA's argument is that since they were not made aware of any breach, Steiner cannot file suit.
