SUNRISE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nation Lawyers Chartered, announced today that it had obtained a Florida court ordered Default against Thunder Energies Corporation, d/b/a the Hemp Plug, LLC and Nature Consulting, LLC on behalf of its client, PotNetwork Holdings, Inc. (OTC Pink: POTN ).
About the Case. On November 16, 2020, First Capital Venture Co., a subsidiary of the client, d/b/a Diamond CBD, filed a civil “Verified Complaint” against Thunder Energies Corporation, f/k/a Thunder Fusion Corporation and CCJ Acquisition Corp, d/b/a the “Hemp Plug, LLC” and “Nature Consulting, LLC,” and certain individuals, (the “Defendants”), in the pending 17th Judicial Circuit Court in and for Broward County, Florida, (the “Florida Court”), Case Number CACE-20-019111 (the “Complaint”).
First Capital Venture Co., as Plaintiff, alleged that the Defendants misappropriated Diamond CBD’s customer and distributor lists, and other confidential, proprietary files, documents and trade secrets, interfered with Diamond CBD’s business relationships with customers and employees, and used said information to compete against Diamond CBD. Plaintiff also alleged that the Defendants had acted maliciously, in “bad faith” and willful wanton disregard of existing agreements with Diamond CBD, and had deliberately ignored “cease and desist” demands and warning letters sent before the filing of the Complaint.
In addition, Plaintiff alleged that the Defendants have failed to disclose to investors in its filings with OTC Markets and the Securities and Exchange Commission (Thunder Energies’ CIK#0001524872) the existence of this litigation.
On January 26, 2021, as a result of the Complaint, the Florida Court reviewed and granted a “Motion and Order of Default” against the Defendants. After entry of the Default, Plaintiff is poised to seek monetary judgment, the amount of which will be determined in the pending lawsuit, plus injunctive relief and other remedies in law and equity to include compensation for lost revenues, legal fees and expenses.
As a result of continued efforts by Nation Lawyers, on February 1, 2021, the Court granted an “Ex-Parte Motion to Compel” that the Defendants failed to respond to the Plaintiff’s December 3, 2020 discovery demand, which will be utilized in part to determine the amount of monetary damages due the Plaintiff.
Legal counsel to First Capital Venture Co. is Jonathan Jaffe, Esquire of Nation Lawyers Chartered, who announced the entry of the default in the pending litigation.
