A legal dispute between a Bend-based marijuana company and its former partner has been dismissed permanently by the Deschutes County Circuit Court.
Oregrown Industries Inc. and Justin Crawn, the former head grower, have agreed to dismiss the lawsuit, including all claims and counterclaims, without costs, disbursements or attorney fees, according to court records filed March 27.
Aviv Hadar, Oregrown CEO and co-founder, said the parties have reached mutually agreeable terms.
“Our board members, shareholders, founders, and employees all want to take this opportunity to thank (Crawn) for the work he has done to help us throughout the years,” Hadar said in an email. “As an organization, we wish nothing but the best for (Crawn) and personally, there is still a tremendous amount of love between the two of us.”
In the initial lawsuit filed in August against Crawn, Oregrown sought $2.7 million in damages, as well as an order stating that Crawn is no longer a shareholder and an order for Crawn to return control of social media accounts to Oregrown. In November, Crawn filed counterclaims, sought $9 million in damages and claimed that Oregrown deprived him of $600,000 in proportional ownership interest.
