City Attorney will seek direction from council as to how to proceed with the eleven pending cases
City councilmembers and San Diego City Attorney Jan Goldsmith will meet behind closed doors on Monday January 28 to discuss the eleven pending lawsuits against Medical Marijuana facilities filed by San Diego.

-City of San Diego v. Brutus Collective, Inc., et al.
-City of San Diego v. Therapeutic Healing Corporation, et al.
City of San Diego v. Rosecrans Herbal Care, Inc., et al.
