On October 26, 2020, the Hon. Joseph R. Brisco (Ret.) awarded Zuber Lawler clients over $65 million after an arbitration over the breach of a cannabis licensing and distribution contract, as well as related business torts. The specifics of the underlying deal concerned a license and distribution arrangement for The Weekend Box, an immensely popular cannabis product kit, in California. Ultimately, the Respondents sought to circumvent the contract, including producing a forged document to interfere with Claimants’ business relationship with their cannabis partners. On May 18, 2018, Zuber Lawler commenced this litigation.
The $66 million award was ultimately confirmed as a judgment by the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, on August 17, 2021.
