New York Cannabis Update

Posted on February 25th, 2022

New York Cannabis Retail Opt-out Window Expires

December 31, 2021 was the deadline for New York municipalities to opt-out of cannabis retail sales. In New York, municipalities were only permitted to opt-out of retail and consumption licenses, and citizens can overturn municipalities’ opt-out ordinances via ballot measure. Fewer than half of New York’s municipalities passed ordinances to opt-out prior to the December 31 deadline. A list of which municipalities have opted out and which have not can be found here.


Gifting Crackdown

The New York Office of Cannabis Management has begun sending cease-and-desist letters warning that conducting illegal sales could jeopardize one’s ability to obtain a license from the OCM in the future. The letters further warn that landlord’s hosting illegal activity on their premises may jeopardize their ability to house a licensed retail dispensary or on-sight consumption lounge in the future. Per the letters, “Illegal sales include the sale of cannabis products in-person at a retail location, online, via delivery, or at an event; and include so-called ‘gifting’ where consumers purchase non-cannabis items or services, such as membership in a club, and are then provided cannabis as part of the sale.” A copy of the enforcement letters can be found here.


Gov. Hochul Signs Conditional Cannabis Cultivation Bill

On Tuesday, February 22, 2022, New York Governor Kathy Hochul signed into law S8084A with the intention of bolstering the adult-use supply chain in preparation of New York’s eventual adult-use industry. S8084A creates the Conditional Adult-use Cannabis Cultivator and Conditional Adult-use Cannabis Processor licenses. Eligibility requirements include having a hemp license from New York’s Department of Agriculture as of Dec. 31, 2021, having grown and harvested hemp for at least two of the past four years, and participating in an environmental sustainability program and social equity mentorship program. These conditional licenses will expire by 2024, so New York hemp businesses will still need to eventually apply for adult-use licenses with the New York Office of Cannabis Management. A copy of S8084A can be found here.  

NJ Medical Pot Hopefuls Say Agency Snubbed Court Ruling

Posted on February 23rd, 2022

Law360 recently reported on Ansell Grimm & Aaron, PC’s challenge to the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission’s decisions on remand after the Commission’s initial decisions were reversed by the Appellate Division on November 25, 2020. Below is the article.

By Sarah Jarvis

Medical marijuana permit applicants have urged a New Jersey appellate court to direct the state’s cannabis regulators to award them licenses to operate facilities, arguing the agency failed to change a single score after an appellate panel remanded the matter over the state’s flawed scoring system.

In Wednesday filings with the Superior Court of New Jersey’s Appellate Division, applicant GGB New Jersey LLC said the state’s Cannabis Regulatory Commission doubled down on previous flawed scoring and didn’t adjust any scores after GGB and other applicants made “comprehensive supplemental submissions” challenging the commission’s scores and their scoring process. The CRC also ignored concerns previously raised by the appellate court about a substantial degree of relative error “by declaring the concept inapplicable to its selection process,” GGB said.

“The commission asserted that the scoring is what it says it is and, strikingly, is beyond judicial review,” GGB said. “The commission’s cursory review also focused on only two of the numerous scoring criteria challenged by appellants, and either rehashed the same arguments that had already been rejected by this court or ignored appellants’ other arguments.”

GGB and the other appellants are seeking an order directing the CRC to award them licenses to operate alternative treatment centers, or medical marijuana dispensaries. Alternatively, they want the matter remanded to the CRC with the appointment of a special master to conduct an investigation, per the company’s filings.

Counsel for GGB called the CRC’s ruling on remand ridiculous and said the company coordinated with other appellants to file nearly identical briefs, but it wasn’t immediately clear Friday which parties had also lodged filings.

The companies had alleged in their initial appeal that the scoring process was inconsistent and arbitrary. The applications were scored on a 1000-point scale by a panel of six unnamed officials from the Department of Health and two other state departments, according to court records.

The appealing companies that received their scores after they were rejected found that the scores were hard to parse, with some judges giving full marks in sections where another judge gave zero points. The numbers were averaged, and the total score determined where the applicant fell in the ranking, so the zeroes brought the scores down dramatically, the companies said.

Once a score was awarded, there was no opportunity to challenge it, according to the companies.

In November 2020, a panel from the Superior Court of New Jersey’s Appellate Division handed down its decision in eight combined appeals from companies that failed to make the cut for the six dispensary licenses the state awarded in 2018. The panel said there were serious problems with the way regulators scored the applications and sent officials back to reconsider the applications of rejected companies, but didn’t specifically tell regulators how to handle the applications after the remand or how to change the application process.

But GGB argued Wednesday that the CRC carried out “a superficial exercise seeking only to justify its own prior, flawed conclusions without actually abiding by the court’s instructions or addressing any of the appellants’ concerns.” Last month, the CRC issued new final agency decisions reaffirming the denials issued to the appellants in the 2018 decisions.

“Despite this court’s opinion and the supplemental submissions, the commission concluded that the process this court found unacceptable had been free from error,” GGB said. “As a result, the commission continues to deprive appellants of due process and neither the public nor this court can have confidence in the commission’s licensing process and the final agency decisions it has reached.”

GGB argued among other things that a recommendation report issued last month by the CRC lacks substantive analysis of the scoring issues the appellants had raised, including “wildly divergent scores and/or zero or low scores” the appellants said were unwarranted compared to the high marks successful applicants received.

“This court should not have to act again in this matter, but the commission has proven that it cannot — and will not — conduct a full and fair review of appellants’ applications,” GGB said. “The commission has proven by its own actions that a further remand will be futile because the agency apparently regards itself as beyond the jurisdiction of this court.”

A representative of the CRC didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Friday.

GGB New Jersey LLC is represented by Joshua S. Bauchner and Rahool Patel of Ansell Grimm & Aaron PC.

Counsel information for the CRC and other applicants wasn’t immediately available Friday.

The case is In the Matter of Application of Medicinal Marijuana Alternative Treatment Center of GGB New Jersey LLC, case number A-2219-18T4, in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Appellate Division.

Ansell Grimm & Aaron 2021 Litigation Roundup

Posted on January 20th, 2022

As the world continues to struggle with the coronavirus pandemic, and millions of small and mid-sized businesses continue to be confronted with unprecedented challenges, the attorneys in Ansell Grimm & Aaron’s Litigation Department assisted the Firm’s clients in protecting their businesses and livelihoods. Led by co-chairs Lawrence Shapiro and Joshua Bauchner, and assisted by attorneys Barry Capp, Anthony D’Artiglio, Stefan Erwin, Rahool Patel, Seth Rosenstein, and Ashley Whitney, the Department is pleased to share its numerous successes.


Bankruptcy Litigation & Debtor/Creditor Matters

Ansell Grimm & Aaron successfully compelled conversion of a meritless Chapter 11 Bankruptcy to a Chapter 7 and convinced the Court to vacate an extension of the automatic stay to principal’s of the Debtor company. Debtor filed a Chapter 11 petition in the District of New Jersey just before it and its principals were scheduled to face trial in the Western District of Missouri on multi-million dollar fraudulent scheme related to the sale of a business. Led by Joshua S Bauchner and Anthony J. D’Artiglio, the firm successfully convinced the Court to vacate an extension of the automatic stay to the principals of Debtor who sought to utilize the Bankruptcy to shield themselves from liability. Furthermore, we vigorously opposed confirmation of a meritless Plan of Reorganization, culminating in Debtor voluntarily converting its Chapter 11 reorganization to a Chapter 7 liquidation requiring the appointment of a Trustee to pursue our client’s and other creditors’ interests. As a result, the adversary complaint and related Bankruptcy matters were dismissed in New Jersey permitting the action to proceed to trial in Missouri.


Breach of Contract Litigation

The Ansell Grimm & Aaron team continued its efforts to recover sums owed to its clients in connection with finance agreements and contracts for the provision of certain services. We doggedly pursued our clients’ counterparties who absconded with loaned funds and enjoyed the benefit of services rendered, resulting in substantial recoveries and settlements for our dedicated and hard-working clients. By way of example, in one action brought on behalf of a trucking insurance agency that guaranteed payments for its client, the insured failed to make millions of dollars in payments under its finance agreement and created a new entity to hide its property and assets from collection. We aggressively tracked down the fraudulently transferred assets, brought the insured’s owner and his new entity into the action, and secured a favorable settlement prior to trial.


Partnership Dispute Litigation

The firm successfully obtained temporary restraints enacted to avoid continued irreparable harm to our client in a derivative action asserting claims against our client’s former business partners for, inter alia, unfair competition, fraud, and breach of fiduciary duty, based on their acts of engaging in direct competition with their shared business and allowing their family members to use the company’s proprietary information to siphon clients and profits from the business. The temporary restraints prevented all competition with our client’s business and provided the leverage necessary to negotiate a dissolution of the business which allowed our client to extricate himself and pursue independent ventures.


Real Estate Litigation

The firm works closely with real estate professionals across the region to protect their rights and put practices in place to minimize potential liability. In an action filed earlier this year on behalf of a Hudson County-based real estate broker, the Firm sued a national real estate developer after the failure to pay a referral fee offered under the developer’s agreement with local brokers. These efforts resulted in our client recovering a substantial portion of the referral fee owed to it, and the same broker subsequently engaged our team to revise their agreements used with clients — and to speak with the broker’s team of agents about mitigating risk and general best practices.


FINRA Matters

In addition to serving as a Financial Industry Resolution Authority (FINRA) Dispute Resolution Services arbitrator, associate Seth Rosenstein also practices before FINRA arbitration panels. In an arbitration filed against a national broker-dealer, the Firm sought an award requiring removal of incorrect and misleading information set forth on the broker-dealer’s Form U5 issued for our client, and for the expungement and removal of the information from FINRA’s Central Registration Depository and BrokerCheck system. Our efforts resulted in the broker-dealer issuing an amended Form U5 that removed the incorrect and misleading information, correcting an injustice that falsely besmirched our client’s reputation.


Police Benevolent Association Matters

Earlier this year, Attorney Ashley V. Whitney filed an appeal with the New Jersey Supreme Court challenging an opinion from the Appellate Division which upheld the termination of a police officer with no prior discipline for alleged violations of the Criminal Justice Information System through his use of full-disclosure vehicle registration searches despite the police department’s failure to identify a single full-disclosure search conducted without justification. The Appellate Division’s decision may have a lasting impact upon the law enforcement community as the performance of searches by police has not been significantly addressed by New Jersey Courts since the decision in State v. Donis, 157 N.J. 44 (1998). The decision is especially pertinent to the issues facing police as it comes on the heels of the Supreme Court’s decision in the matter of In re AG Law Enf’t Directive Nos. 2020-5 & 2020-6, 2021 N.J. LEXIS 486 (June 7, 2021), which upheld the New Jersey Attorney General’s Directives requiring the release of the names of police officers who receive major discipline.

Ms. Whitney continued her prior practice of the representation of police officers as a member of the PBA Legal Protection Plan at the Firm’s Woodland Park office, which included the defense of a high-ranking correctional police officer served with inflated disciplinary charges seeking termination. Following a departmental hearing and the presentation of favorable witness testimony, the employer decreased the proposed penalty from termination to suspension and we are awaiting a final decision.


Class Action Litigation

Ansell Grimm & Aaron successfully obtained dismissal of a nationwide class action in the District of New Jersey for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. Plaintiff brought claims against related to beauty products against the seller, shipper, and a host of individuals and entities. We filed a Motion to Dismiss pursuant to Federal Rule 12(b)(1) asserting the Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction as a result of a pre-litigation, full refund offer by our client to the aggrieved consumer. The Court agreed that the full refund offer made in the ordinary course of business operated to moot Plaintiff’s claims, and dismissed the entire action.


Public Entity Litigation

Ansell Grimm & Aaron successfully secured summary against Plaintiff on a multi-million dollar claim against the City of Bayonne, wherein Plaintiff alleged that Bayonne discriminated against him when it condemned and subsequently demolished a rental property he owned because it was unsafe. We successfully convinced the Court that the claims were barred by the statute of limitations, that the demolition did not constitute a taking within the meaning of  11 U.S.C. 1983, and that Plaintiff’s tort claims could not be asserted against a municipality as a matter of law, leading to dismissal of the entire case.
