Tommy Chong And Son Settle Lawsuit Over A Cannabis Marketing Deal
On Friday, Judge Robert S. Draper vacated the scheduled Oct. 11 trial date
Tommy Chong and the comic’s son have reached a settlement with a licensing company that sued the pair alleging they cut them out of the profits generated from a marketing plan the plaintiffs established to sell marijuana products and accessories.
Evergreen Licensing LLC and its founder, Brian Vecchio, named Tommy and Paris Chong as defendants in the Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit, along with Jon-Paul Cowen, described in the complaint as a business associate of the Chongs.
On Friday, Judge Robert S. Draper vacated the scheduled Oct. 11 trial date for the case. The terms of the accord were not revealed in court papers announcing the settlement that were filed by the plaintiffs on Aug. 25.
Chong, now 84, was chosen to help market the Evergreen project because he is a “well-known and longtime proponent of the legalization and responsible use of cannabis,” the suit filed in April 2018 stated.
