From an additional $286,718 also deposited by Bhang (for a total of $2,045,667 deposited by Bhang, and interest thereon), Mentor repurchased and recovered 117,000 shares of its common stock under the Judgment. This marked satisfaction in full of the Judgment.

In connection with that dismissal the court also vacated its September 25, 2017 Memorandum Decision and Order, of which Mentor had been seeking reconsideration. On February 2, 2018 the case was ordered closed.
