TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Herban Industries CA LLC (“Herban”) today filed suit in the California Superior Court for the County of San Francisco against Eaze Technologies, Inc. (“Eaze”) seeking an injunction to halt Eaze’s processing of credit and debit cards through its website and app. Herban is a wholly-owned subsidiary of DionyMed Brands Inc. (“DionyMed” or the “Company“) (CSE: DYME; OTCQB: DYMEF), a multi-state cannabis brands, distribution and direct-to-consumer delivery platform. The complaint alleges that “to gain an unfair competitive advantage in the California cannabis delivery market, Eaze is directing, coordinating, and participating in a scheme to defraud credit card companies and financial institutions into processing cannabis transactions in violation of a host of criminal laws,” including prohibitions against wire fraud and bank fraud. The complaint alleges Eaze carries out this conspiracy using offshore payment processors and a series of shell companies to conceal the cannabis nature of card purchases made on its platform. As relief, the complaint seeks an injunction to halt Eaze’s credit and debit card processing and an end to its unfair competition against Chill, DionyMed’s direct-to-consumer platform.
