Attorney Vincent Howard Featured in National Law Journal
In an interview with the National Law Journal, Vincent Howard discusses the flurry of lawsuits in California over medical marijuana ordinances. Medical marijuana dispensaries have filed suit against California cities challenging these ordinances that threaten the existence of medical marijuana businesses. Mr. Howard who represents at least 10 dispensaries in Los Angeles, expects more suits to be filed, “Although it’s been a taboo subject for a long time, it’s still a legal business.”
Attorney Naveen Madala Quoted in National Law Journal
In an interview with the National Law Journal, HOWARD LAW attorney Naveen Madala discusses the continuing battle of two Lake Forest City medical marijuana dispensaries to keep their doors open. On July 6, 2010 a California appellate court granted a temporary stay allowing the stores to remain open, even though a newly enacted municipal code has forced several others to close their doors. A second ruling on a similar case should be decided on July 19. "This puts us in a holding pattern until that decision comes out," said Madala. The appellate court's decision blocks a May 28 injunction issued by an Orange County Superior Court judge, who ruled that both dispensaries violated the Lake Forest municipal code, which prohibits land uses or businesses that violate state or federal law. Although state law allows dispensaries to operate, marijuana remains illegal under federal law.
