(Correction: An earlier version of this article noted that the settlement including no monetary damages.)
Several Arizona-based companies agreed to stop using television talk-show host and medical marijuana activist Montel Williams’ name in their CBD materials.
Under the agreement, which is final but still requires a judge’s sign-off, the Arizona companies agreed to stop using Williams’ name or likeness. The agreement includes undisclosed monetary damages.
A spokesman for Williams said he is still pursuing fraud charges against other companies he says wrongly used his name in marketing materials.
