Whole Hemp Company, LLC is facing a lawsuit. The plaintiff is the company’s former vice president of business development and marketing, Dale Takio.
He alleges that Kashif Shan tried to deprive him of promised equity in the company, and that Shan and Quan Nguyen committed breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty.
The court filings, as presented by Green Market Report, states in part:
“For example, on January 8, 2019, Shan and Nguyen caused $585,070.55 to be transferred from Folium’s bank account to Nguyen. That same day, Shan and Nguyen caused $1,999,921.84 to be transferred to Shan’s wife. On January 18, 2019, Shan and Nguyen caused $464,745.69 to be transferred to Nguyen. Also on January 18, 2019, Shan and Nguyen caused $1,664,672.54 to be transferred to Shan’s wife. In other words, in January 2019 alone, Shan and Nguyen caused $3,664,594.38 to be transferred to Shan’s wife and $1,049,816.24 to be transferred to Nguyen. Other Folium members, such as Takio did not receive similar distributions.”
The lawsuit further alleges, in part:
“On information and belief, Shan and Nguyen have engaged in numerous other acts of misconduct that have caused significant harm to Folium and its members, including Takio”.
