U.S. District Court Ruling Allows City of Oakland to Continue Fighting FedsSalem-News.com
Harborside Health Center Allowed to Stay Open - A win for Medical Cannabis Patients in California Courts.
(OAKLAND) - This morning U.S. District Court Judge Maria-Elena James granted the City of Oakland’s motion to stay the civil forfeiture proceeding against Harborside Health Center Oakland until the City of Oakland’s pending appeal is heard in the Federal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge James also ruled that the stay in the commercial forfeiture proceeding should be extended to the Harborside San Jose location.
A trial date for the federal civil forfeiture action against both Harborside locations will not be set until after the Federal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals rules on Oakland’s motion of appeal concerning harm and public safety issues. Oakland’s attorneys estimated this may take 15 months.
