International Business Times:  “On Tuesday [February 19, 2013], U.S. Chief Magistrate Judge Maria-Elena James dismissed a lawsuit filed by the City of Oakland against Attorney General Eric Holder and U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag that sought to halt the federal government’s closure of the shop. Haag had said in July that the store, which was featured on the Discovery Channel television series ‘Weed Wars,’ has become too large, making it a candidate for the Obama administration’s marijuana dispensary crackdown that began 2010.  ‘We are, of course, disappointed in today’s ruling,’ Harborside executive director Steve DeAngelo said in a statement.”
