Cannabis 303: Civil Litigation in the Cannabis Industry:
An Unavoidable Consequence of a Maturing U.S. Cannabis Market
Join us Tuesday, April 21, 2020 | 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. (Eastern time)
The maturing cannabis industry mirrors other U.S. industries in many ways, including, with increasing frequency, the use of civil litigation to resolve disputes and reward injured parties. However, given the cannabis regulatory structure, cannabis-focused civil litigation raises unique issues. This webinar will highlight the growing number and various types of civil litigation matters that have been filed in the cannabis industry, including CBD-related products liability and consumer fraud cases, performance-related securities litigation, operator partnership disputes, breach of commercial contracts such as supply agreements, trademark infringement actions and employment litigation matters. In addition, the presentation will cover best practices for businesses with respect to preparing for, and possibly preventing, potentially resource-draining, and almost always disruptive, civil litigation matters.
