United States District Court, D. Nevada

May 1, 2018

SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION, Plaintiff,
v.
CANNAVEST CORP. a/k/a/ CV SCIENCES, INC. and MICHAEL J. MONA, JR., Defendants.

          David J. Van Havermaat Attorney for Plaintiff Securities and Exchange Commission.

          S. ToddNeal Attorney for Defendants CannaVEST Corp. and Michael J. Mona, Jr.

          JOINT MOTION BY PLAINTIFF SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION AND DEFENDANTS CANNAVEST CORP. AND MICHAEL J. MONA, JR. TO CONTINUE PRETRIAL DATES

         DAVID J. VAN HAVERMAAT (Cal. Bar No. 175761)

         JENNIFER T. CALABRESE (Cal. Bar No. 247976)

         Attorneys for Plaintiff Securities and Exchange Commission Michele Wein Layne, Regional Director Alka Patel, Associate Regional Director Amy J. Longo, Regional Trial Counsel Plaintiff Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC" or "Commission") and defendants CannaVEST Corp. a/k/a/ CV Sciences, Inc. ("CannaVest") and Michael J. Mona, Jr. ("Mona"), by and through their undersigned counsel, jointly move as follows:

         On October 31, 2017, the Court entered an order that, among other things, set April 18, 2018 as the last date to file the joint pretrial order in this action. (Dkt. No. 24). The parties have now reached a tentative settlement with regard to the SEC's claims against CannaVest and Mona. The settlement is tentative because only the SEC Commissioners in Washington D.C. have the final authority to approve the settlement proposal. The approval process typically takes several weeks, and the SEC staff has been attempting diligently to obtain final consideration for the settlement with CannaVest and Mona. Final consideration of the tentative settlement with CannaVest and Mona has taken longer than usual, however, and the SEC staff expects that the SEC Commissioners will consider the tentative settlement within 30 days of the date of this joint motion.

         In light of the tentative settlement between the SEC and CannaVest and Mona, the parties respectfully request that the date to file the final pretrial conference order be continued for 30 days, until May 18, 2018, to provide time for the SEC Commissioners to consider the tentative settlement. The parties have not previously requested continuance of any pretrial dates in this action. The SEC staff will notify the Court immediately if it appears that final consideration of the tentative settlement will not take place within 30 days of this motion.

         IT IS SO ORDERED.
