California delivery app (and WeedWeek advertiser) Eaze won a court victory which could help solidify the standing of cannabis business contracts.
A federal district court judge dismissed a class action lawsuit which alleged the app had violated the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act by sending unsolicited text messages.
- The judge ruled that because the customer had agreed to Eaze’s terms of service — which require arbitration to decide any disputes — the suit had to be heard in arbitration rather than court.
- Eaze Chief Risk Officer Andrea Lobato said a ruling for the plaintiff could have invalidated cannabis contracts in California and nationwide.
- MJBiz co-founder Cassandra Farrington is stepping down as CEO and will transition to board chair. She’ll be replaced by founding editor and president Chris Walsh.
