DELAWARE: A Delaware judge has refused to dismiss a lawsuit against a lobbyist and former aide to U.S. Sen. Tom Carper who was chosen to operate Delaware’s first medical marijuana dispensary.
Vice Chancellor John Noble on Friday refused to dismiss a complaint against First State Compassion Center and Mark Lally.
Former Lewes city councilman A. Judson Bennett claims in the lawsuit that Lally breached an agreement to help Bennett seek a medical marijuana license and instead began working for a rival group.
State officials last month finalized a contract with First State to operate Delaware’s medical marijuana dispensary. First State is linked to Massachusetts-based Sigal Consulting, which specializes in developing medical marijuana operations.
