California Court Issues Temporary Restraining Order Against Lanham, Riley, Cutler, and Their Nevada Company: Nymox Reports Notice
Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation ("Nymox" or the "Company") has announced that a United States court in Orange County, California, has ruled against ex-employees and agents Lanham, Riley, and Cutler, as well as their Nevada company. The court ruling grants Nymox's application for a temporary restraining order, ordering the defendants to cease using, disclosing, relying on, or making publicly available any Nymox attorney-client privileged information. The defendants are also required to return any Nymox material in their possession to the Company.

Nymox urges its shareholders to contact the Company if they receive or have received communications from the mentioned individuals, including CRNSV, that may contain Nymox attorney-client privileged information. The Company appreciates the support of the majority of its shareholders and remains committed to providing updates and communications to its valued supporters.
