The scheduled hearing in the Seattle Events et al v. State of Washington et al case regarding cannabis advertising law was cancelled subsequent to the Court receiving the State Defendants’ response to the Plaintiffs’ motion for reconsideration.
- On Monday August 31st, we wrote “the Thurston County Superior Court was scheduled to host a hearing to reconsider the Seattle Events et al v. State of Washington et al case regarding cannabis advertising law.” But the hearing was cancelled as court procedure unfolded.
- On the morning of Tuesday September 1st, Assistant Attorneys General Jonathan Pitel and Geoffrey Allen from the Washington State Office of the Attorney General (OAG) filed a Response to Plaintiff’s Motion for Reconsideration claiming “Plaintiffs’ Motion for Reconsideration misapprehends the recent Supreme Court decision in Barr v. American Association of Political Consultants, Inc., and provides no grounds on which this Court should reconsider its Order.”
- Later on Tuesday afternoon, Thurston County Superior Court Judge Christopher Lanese filed an Order Denying Motion for Reconsideration and Striking Hearing. Rejecting the Plaintiff’s Motion for Reconsideration, the Judge’s August 10th Order Granting Defendants’ Motion for Summary Judgment remained in effect, declaring “Plaintiff’s claims against all Defendants are dismissed with prejudice and without costs.”
