Another legal victory for City Attorney Carmen Trutanich's office.
"Carmen the who"?
While other members of the Los Angeles Political Bloggin Community have readily attack the person and work of City Attorney Carmen Trutanich, recent legal victories by the City Attorney's office is showing that the much-maligned (in the blogging community) first term top legal official's team is jelling into a top notch and potent legal machine.
The decision is a major victory for the city attorney's office, which has invested considerable time and expense in defending the law from a phalanx of lawyers working for dispensaries.
Superior Court Judge Anthony J. Mohr, who handles some of the most complex cases in Los Angeles County, held a series of hearings over many months on numerous constitutional challenges raised by the pot collectives. He delved deeply into the issue, studying vaguely worded state medical marijuana laws, a tangle of court cases and exhaustive briefing papers filed by the opposing sides.
"It has been a long wait but well worth it," said Jane Usher, a special assistant city attorney. "It is absolutely gratifying to have the city's ordinance validated."
...... and now your thoughts on "Carmen the who"? That would be City Attorney.
