Jeff matura and melanie weigand prevail in appeal to the arizona court of appeals regarding cannabis dispute
Jeff Matura and Melanie Weigand successfully represented a licensed cannabis company in an appeal before the Arizona Court of Appeals.
A third-party cultivation operator filed a lawsuit against a licensed cannabis company for breach of contract, breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, conversion, and unjust enrichment. The trial court dismissed the lawsuit on a technicality, which was subject to reversal. The third-party cultivation operator therefore filed an appeal to the Arizona Court of Appeals. Mr. Matura and Ms. Weigand were brought in to handle the appeal due to their specialized knowledge and experience in the cannabis industry.
Mr. Matura and Ms. Weigand handled all aspects of the appeal, including the briefing and arguments submitted to the Arizona Court of Appeals. After considering the issues, the Arizona Court of Appeals issued a decision to uphold the trial court's dismissal. The Arizona Court of Appeals also granted Mr. Matura's and Ms. Weigand's request that it order the third-party cultivation operator to reimburse the licensed cannabis company for all attorneys' fees and legal costs it incurred. The Arizona Court of Appeals' decision was therefore a complete victory for the licensed cannabis company.
