Apothio’s lawsuit

What is the essence of the lawsuit? The cannabis grower is seeking $1 million in compensation from the county for the damage caused. The deputies and California’s Department of Fish and Wildlife bulldozed 450 acres of crops. Apothio’s representative stated:

“The court systems work really well, they are just expensive. ... I believe ILOs can be a positive force for access to justice.”

How does the lawsuit’s tokenization work? Litigation funding investment is when third-party investors unrelated to a case can provide funds to a litigant in a court case and receive a return if the case has a positive outcome. Under an ILO, the fund contributors receive digital tokens that entitle them to receive a portion of the damages recovered.
