Power, Money, Respect | Chocolate City v. Brymo Case Returns to COURT February 26th, 2014


Alright people, we are headed back into the courtroom in the Chocolate City v. Brymo Breach of contract case. All hands on deck, and all eyes definitely on this case. Chocolate City is hitting Brymo with a take no prisoners style litigation. Brymo looks like he is prepared to give a good fight.

Now from our standpoint, it is a good thing if this case proceeds all the way to trial because it will give the industry a clear blue print going forward on what the law is. For the litigants, however, they really should settle this case. But heyyyyyyy, either way, we got them on lock down here on AML.  See you all for the injunction hearing on February 26th, 2014. (Raises gavel and hits it). Court is adjourned folks.

In case you missed the gist of this litigation, here you go:
