PHILADELPHIA – A California man and his limited liability company allege that they were not fully compensated by a New York company and its members for their assistance with a cannabis license.
Harris Silver and Entity X LLC filed a complaint on Jan. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Harold Chase Lenfest, Kevin Murphy, Melvin Yellin, High Street Capital Partners Management LLC, High Street Capital Partners LLC, Prime Wellness of Pennsylvania LLC, and HCL MM Investments PA LLC alleging breach of contract, common law fraud, unjust enrichment and other counts.
According to the complaint, High Street Capital Partners Management sought assistance from Silver to obtain a cannabis license in Pennsylvania in agreement for $180,000, plus a $150,000 cash bonus and 4 percent equity stake in any licensee.
The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible because they have allegedly failed to give Silver his cash bonus and equity stake.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek compensatory damages, interest and any further relief the court grants. They are represented by Peter J. Kreher of Kreher & Trapani LLP in Philadelphia.
