An Idaho man is accusing his onetime partner of foiling a hemp-processing venture in Montana and making off with some $2 million.
Jeremiah Skaggs says in the lawsuit that Clinton Boone was hired by Isotex Health LLC of Texas in 2019 to start a CBD processing facility in Lincoln, Montana.
Isotex promised locals that the CBD facility would eventually employ 120 people.
Skaggs says he moved to Montana to start the project and was supposed to receive 45% of its proceeds. However, Skaggs says, Boone diverted funds and machines intended for the Montana facility.
The project was terminated in 2020. Skaggs is asking a federal court in Montana to award him unspecified damages.
Law 360 first reported the lawsuit. Boone’s attorneys did not immediately reply to the complaint.
