Medical Marijuana Litigation
The firm has several years of experience in litigating on behalf of cities and counties in matters involving medical marijuana dispensaries. We have assisted, and continue to assist, local jurisdictions in shutting down illegal dispensaries. Since 2009, we have initiated and defended litigation in this quickly developing field of law for, as example, the cities of Westminster, Costa Mesa, Santa Fe Springs, Huntington Park and Stanton.
As counsel to the California Police Chiefs’ Association (CPCA), the California State Sheriffs’ Association (CSSA), and the California Peace Officers’ Association (CPOA), we have served as counsel for amici curiae in most of the major cases that have shaped the law in this field.
We have been involved in litigation in multiple court proceedings, including matters before the California Court of Appeal, the California Supreme Court and the United States Supreme Court. In addition, we have provided information and training to cities, counties, and law enforcement agencies throughout the state, and our Client Alert Memos keep California’s public agencies abreast of the most important developments in this field.
