Partner Kristi Wolff and Associate Lee Baumgardner Quoted in Rose Sheet Article on CBD Lawsuits
August 22, 2019
Partner Kristi Wolff and associate Lee Baumgardner were quoted in the Rose Sheet article “CBD Suits Challenge 'THC-Free' Claims After Users Fail Drug Tests; Plaintiffs Bar May Just Be Warming Up.”  According to the article, suits filed by individuals who were terminated from their jobs after testing positive for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which they attribute to defendants' purportedly THC-free cannabidiol product, could be the “trickle before the flood.”

Quoting from an August 9th blog written by Kristi and Lee, they say that “setting aside the employment issues in these cases, the plaintiffs’ bar is likely to scrutinize CBD labels with the same skeptical eye they have taken to the food and beverage industry in recent years.”
