Breaking News: Judge Dismisses MedPonics Complaint

Judge Mitchell L. Hoffman today dismissed with prejudice the lawsuit brought by Medponics Illinois LLC against Khalatbari, et al., in the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit Court of Lake County, Illinois.

MedPonics’ suit, filed in May of 2015, alleged that Kayvan Khalatbari, a Denver-based medical marijuana business owner, along with partners Ean Seeb and Nick Hice, was attempting to monopolize the fledgling Illinois medical marijuana industry by owning interests in more than three licenses. If true, this would have been in direct violation of Illinois law.

Hoffman dismissed the complaint against defendants Khalatbari, Denver Relief LLC and Denver Relief Consulting LLC, stating, “The motion to dismiss is granted because the Plaintiff has no standing in this matter, as stated in the record.”
