Item 8.01. Other Events.
On September 25, 2017 a Federal District Court in Utah ruled against Mentor on a Motion for Partial Summary Judgment in a case that is pending there. The hearing on that motion had occurred in January, 2017. Mentor has been conducting discovery since that hearing, uncovering evidence and information contradictory to the plaintiffs’ claims in that case. Mentor believes that the ruling was erroneous and intends to use all efforts to ensure that all facts are considered by the District Court and on any necessary appeal. Mentor still intends to pursue Cross-Defendants Richard Golden and Scott Van Rixel for indemnity.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
