The lawsuit alleges that Mettrum Ltd used unauthorized pest control products in the production of some of its medical marijuana products between September 2014 and November 2016. The lawsuit seeks millions in damages for the proposed class of individuals who purchased the affected products. The Court has not yet determined whether the Plaintiff’s claim will be successful.
A Class Action Case Management Judge has been appointed to oversee this proceeding.
The plaintiff is moving to have this action certified as a class proceeding.
