Mass Roots: Deadly Dietrich Is Back & He Has A New Buddy, Mr Meeks & They Are Embroiled In A $12 Million Arbitration Claim By A Caymans Investment Fund.

Oh .. how we missed him… like a hole in the head.

MJ Biz report today  (MJ Biz Report – Cannabis tech firm MassRoots, hedge fund in legal tangle over stock claim) that toady Isaac Dietrich is being sued by Iroquois Capital Management of the Cayman Islands.

Why they thought getting into bed with him in the first place was a good idea (do they do due diligence) or did they just see how idiotic he is and had planned this approach all the way along.

Mass Roots is the topic of the book on how to do absolutely everything wrong in the cannabis industry that I’ll be writing when I get some spare time.

He would have been better growing a few plants in his backyard and selling to friends !

 

The Good Old Days !!

 

Bullshit Detector !I used to work in politics ,he says in this  2019 interview, if that doesn’t ring warning bells what does?

MJ Biz Report

Cannabis social media platform MassRoots, which recently announced a deal to merge with a metal-recycling firm, is trying to fend off a $12 million arbitration claim by an investment fund.

Iroquois Master Fund, a hedge fund operated by Iroquois Capital Management of the Cayman Islands, claimed in a demand for arbitration that it holds a warrant entitling it to purchase up to 156.3 million shares of MassRoots stock at .0004 dollars per share.

 

Denver-based MassRoots (MSRT) was trading at about 5 cents a share on Wednesday on the over-the-counter markets.

In a federal lawsuit filed Monday in the Southern District of New York, MassRoots counters that it’s not subject to the warrant, which Iroquois bought from a third-party in 2019.

THE LAWSUIT

MassRoots-lawsuit

The company is requesting a court injunction to prevent Iroquois from pursuing the matter through arbitration, saying it would cause “irreparable harm.”

MassRoots, which has managed to dodge a number of financial bullets over the years, announced in May a $14 million deal with Virginia-based metal-recycling firm Empire Services.

NORFOLK, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MassRoots, Inc. (“MassRoots” or the “Company”) (OTCPink:MSRT) is pleased to report that it expects Empire Services, Inc.

MassRoots recently entered into a Letter of Intent to acquire Empire, which is expected to result in MassRoots generating significant revenues and positive cashflows from operations. Upon closing of the Empire acquisition, the Company intends to apply to uplist to the Nasdaq Capital Market or the NYSE American Market, which MassRoots believes would result in a significant increase in visibility, liquidity, and institutional interest for its stock.

“Over the coming weeks, we plan to aggressively expand Empire’s footprint through the roll-up of independent, profitable metal recycling facilities,” stated Danny Meeks, Chairman of MassRoots. “With inflationary pressures continuing to increase and unabating demand for metals independent of a potential infrastructure investment package, we believe there will be a robust market for metals for the foreseeable future. These are the market conditions in which Empire thrives and has historically generated the highest revenues and profit margins.”

Isaac Dietrich, Chief Executive Officer of MassRoots added, “We have implemented several technology solutions that have already increased metal volumes and operating efficiencies at Empire’s existing facilities. These include a cloud-based ERP system, a corporate website with live metal prices, and in the very near future, an instant online quoting system for people looking to sell their junk cars. The planned closing of the Empire acquisition is proceeding on schedule and I believe will be transformative for the more than 30,000 loyal and supportive MassRoots shareholders.”

Established in 2002, Empire operates 10 metal recycling facilities in Virginia and North Carolina and expects to continue expanding its footprint in the coming weeks. It has historically generated higher profit margins when market prices for metal rise.

Iroquois, which is seeking up to $12 million in damages in the arbitration request, claims that MassRoots and Meeks are unjustly enriching themselves by ignoring the obligation to Iroquois.

Meeks, according to Iroquois, boasted he would personally receive all 495 million shares of stock issued by MassRoots in connection with the Empire deal and would never issue shares to Iroquois.

 

Also…… On the subject of Meeks we had a quick look around and can see why he and Dietrich get on so well.

The Virginian Pilot reports

Despite protest, ex-councilman Danny Meeks still finalist for Portsmouth city manager

Out of more than 100 people who applied to be Portsmouth’s city manager, council members said they’ve chosen a handful of finalists who will be interviewed this week. They include ex-councilman Danny Meeks, who lost the election for mayor last year to Shannon Glover.

Meeks already got the manager job once — sort of. In an unscheduled vote Jan. 12, Vice Mayor De’Andre Barnes and councilmen Paul Battle, Bill Moody and Christopher Woodard voted to hire Meeks. The group soon reversed course and voted to reopen the application portal — despite the majority’s desire to hire him, Meeks had not applied for the job.

Meeks also has almost none of the usual educational or work qualifications for a city manager, who runs the government day to day and effectively serves as the CEO.

Portsmouth’s job listing said an applicant was required to have a bachelor’s degree in public administration, business administration, urban planning or a related field — a master’s degree is preferred — along with at least seven years of experience in a senior executive position in an operation similar to the city’s government.

Meeks did not attend college and has run multiple businesses, including Empire Services, a recycling company.

Councilman Mark Whitaker said he won’t participate in any interview of Meeks for city manager. In an email, Whitaker said Meeks does not have the publicly listed qualifications for the job and others chose whether to apply based on that public notice.

Whitaker also suggested Meeks was being given special treatment because he is white — a common allegation under the previous council, where the four white members often outvoted the three Black ones.

Following November’s election, all council members except one (Bill Moody) are Black. That includes three of the four who initially voted to hire Meeks.

But Whitaker said history is replete with examples of the rules being changed to accommodate some people based on their races, including by giving them jobs over more qualified people of another race.

“I will not participate in something which requires me to lower my standards and ignore my values,” Whitaker added.

The near-hiring of Meeks drew a strong community response, with local business owners and leaders of civil rights groups organizing a demonstration, gathering more than 500 letters against the move, questioning how it happened and calling Meeks unqualified for the job. The demonstration in downtown drew a counterprotest.

Discussions at council meetings have not shed much light on how Meeks emerged as a leading candidate for city manager.
