We have a lot of people asking if we filed lawsuits in their city or state. With its plethora of laws and restrictions, it’s no surprise that one of the most common states we’re asked about is California. We’re happy to report that not only do we have almost a dozen cases already filed in California, there are plenty more to come!
Here is a quick breakdown of the cases we're currently working on along with links for more info and to view case documents:
