“A judge on Thursday rebuffed efforts by Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery to further delay the paperwork necessary for opening a marijuana dispensary.  Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Michael Gordon said he heard nothing from Montgomery during the half-hour hearing to convince him to stay his ruling earlier this month ordering the county to provide the necessary zoning documentation the would-be operators of a Sun City dispensary need to get the required state permit. Montgomery wants to keep that shop from opening while he seeks review from the state Court of Appeals.

Montgomery said later than Kaufman and his client may regret pushing ahead with their clinic plans while he seeks appellate court review.  ‘Their haste to open could very well result in the equally quick loss of their investment and liberty,’ he said.”
