  The Shuman Law Firm Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action   Lawsuit Against CannaVEST Corp.  Business Wire  BOULDER, Colo. -- May 20, 2014  The Shuman Law Firm today announced that a lawsuit seeking class action status has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of CannaVEST Corp. (“CannaVEST” or the “Company”) (OTC: CANV) securities between May 20, 2013 and April 3, 2014, inclusive (the “Class Period”).  If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights and interests with respect to this matter, please contact Kip B. Shuman or Rusty E. Glenn toll free at (866) 974-8626 or email Mr. Shuman at kip@shumanlawfirm.com or Mr. Glenn at rusty@shumanlawfirm.com.  The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period defendants issued false and misleading statements or failed to disclose that the Company was misrepresenting and inflating its sales and also exaggerating its goodwill. On April 3, 2014, CannaVEST announced that on March 28, 2014, management concluded that the Company’s previously issued financial statements contained in the Company’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2013, June 30, 2013, and September 30, 2013, should no longer be relied upon, and that sales and cost of sales for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, were misstated. On this news, shares in CannaVEST fell over 20%, closing at $25.30 per share on April 3, 2014, on unusually heavy trading volume.  If you are a member of the proposed class, you may request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff of the class no later June 23, 2014. A lead plaintiff is a class member that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Although your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision whether or not to seek appointment as a lead plaintiff, lead plaintiffs make important decisions which could affect the overall recovery for class members.
