In a civil suit filed July 7 in Sacramento, Attorney General Xavier Becerra alleges Grand River Enterprises — or GRE, for short — failed to comply with tobacco sales laws and illegally sold cigarettes.
More specifically, the company is accused of failing to make roughly $13 million in escrow payments between 2014 and 2016 and of violating California’s revenue and taxation code and health and safety code.
