Nossaman Appellate Win For SweetFlower Noted


Our win for SweetFlower was highlighted in the Law360 article “Pasadena Pot Licensing Suits Can Proceed, California Panel Says.” The article provides an overview of how a three-judge panel with California's Second District Court of Appeal recently ruled that Sweetflower can pursue three lawsuits challenging the city of Pasadena's recreational marijuana licensing process as inconsistent and arbitrary, rejecting two competitors’ stance that the claims seeking to upend their applications are based on protected speech.

The panel agreed with a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge's decisions keeping alive SweetFlower’s three lawsuits, stopping attempts by the company’s competitors – Integral Associates Dena LLC and Harvest of Pasadena LLC – to “strike claims that their applications were invalid under the city's own rules.”

Artin ShaverdianGreg Sanders and John Flynn represented SweetFlower.
