There have been no changes to the disclosure related to our settlements with Uber Technologies, Inc. and Ellenoff Grossman & Schole LLP, as well as, the dismissal of claims brought by Sha-Poppin Gourmet Popcorn, LLC since the filing of our Annual Report on Form 10-K. See Note 9, "Commitments and Contingencies" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 31, 2021 for further information on the these matters.
On December 17, 2019, certain stockholders filed a lawsuit against Phunware and its individual officers and directors. The case, captioned Wild Basin Investments, LLC, et al. v. Phunware, Inc., et al., was filed in the 126th Judicial District Court of Travis County, Texas (Cause No. D-1-GN-19-008846). Plaintiffs alleged that they invested in various early rounds of financing while the Company was private and that Phunware should not have subjected their shares to a 180-day “lock up” period. Plaintiffs also allege that Phunware’s stock price dropped significantly during the lock up period and seek unspecified damages, costs, and professional fees. On June 23, 2021, Defendants filed a motion to dismiss the petition based on the mandatory forum-selection clause in Phunware’s Articles of Incorporation, which require Plaintiffs’ claims to be filed in Delaware Chancery Court. We intend to vigorously defend against the lawsuit. We have not recorded an expense related to this matter because any potential loss is not currently probable or reasonably estimable. Additionally, we cannot presently estimate the range of loss, if any, that may result from the matter. It is possible that the ultimate resolution of the foregoing matter, or other similar matters, if resolved in a manner unfavorable to us, may be materially adverse to our business, financial condition, results of operations or liquidity.
On March 30, 2021, Phunware filed an action against its former counsel Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, PC (“WSGR”). The matter is Phunware, Inc., v. Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, Professional Corporation, Does 1-25, Case No. 21CV381517, filed in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Santa Clara. The complaint alleges a single cause of action for negligence related to services provided by WSGR to Phunware. On July 30, 2021, we filed a second action against WSGR in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Santa Clara. As of August 10, 2021, the Court was processing the filing to issue a case number. The second complaint alleges causes of action for negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, and negligent misrepresentation related to services provided by WSGR to Phunware. We’re seeking compensatory and consequential damages, attorney’s fees and costs, interest and other relief the Court deems just and proper. The case is in the early stages of litigation; the outcome is not certain.
From time to time, we are and may become involved in various legal proceedings in the ordinary course of business. The outcomes of our legal proceedings are inherently unpredictable, subject to significant uncertainties, and could be material to our operating results and cash flows for a particular reporting period. In addition, for the matters disclosed above that do not include an estimate of the amount of loss or range of losses, such an estimate is not possible, and we may be unable to estimate the possible loss or range of losses that could potentially result from the application of non-monetary remedies.
The entire disclosure for commitments and contingencies.
