Note 20 Commitments and contingencies
On May 28, 2019, the Company and Mentor Partner I, LLC filed suit against the G Farma Entities and three guarantors to the G Farma agreements, described in Notes 1, 8, 9, and 10, in the California Superior Court in and for the County of Marin. The Company is primarily seeking monetary damages for breach of the G Farma agreements including promissory notes, leases, and other agreements, as well as actions for an injunction to recover leased property, to recover collateral under a security agreement, and to collect from guarantors on the agreements. Mentor intends to vigorously pursue this matter; however, collection is uncertain at this time. Due to uncertainty of collection, the Company has recorded reserves against the finance leases receivable described in Note 9 and has fully impaired all other notes receivables and investments in G Farma described in Notes 8, 9 and 10.
On November 13, 2019, G Farma filed a Cross-Complaint for declaratory relief and breach of contract relating to the consulting agreement between Mentor and G Farma. The Company filed an answer on December 6, 2019, denying each and every allegation of the Cross-Complaint and intends to vigorously defend itself in this matter.

In the quarter ended March 31, 2020, the Company sold a portion of the recovered equipment, with an original cost of $495,967, for net proceeds of $222,031. In the quarter ended June 30, 2020, the Company sold all remaining recovered equipment, with an original cost of $126,703, for net proceeds of $27,450, after deducting shipping and delivery costs. All proceeds from the sale of repossessed equipment has been applied to the G Farma lease receivable balance.
On July 2, 2020, Mentor Capital, Inc. and Mentor Partner I, LLC filed a motion for summary adjudication seeking judgment on four of its sixteen causes of action related to breach of the Promissory Notes and the related guarantees.

We intend to vigorously pursue the collection of damages against G FarmaLabs Limited, Mr. Gonzalez, and Ms. Gonzalez.
For G Farma notes receivable we will continue to pursue collection from G Farma, its affiliates, and the guarantors of the various G Farma note purchase agreements that are fully impaired at December 31, 2020, see Note 8. We will continue to pursue collection for lease payments remaining, after applying proceeds from the sale of recovered assets, that are fully impaired at December 31, 2020, from the G Farma Lease Entities and G Farma Lease Guarantors, see Note 9.
