SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A judge paved the way for federal authorities to close a California medical marijuana dispensary on Thursday that bills itself as the world's largest, dismissing a challenge by the city of Oakland to a federal crackdown targeting the facility, court papers showed.
Magistrate Judge Maria-Elena James wrote in a 10-page ruling that a local attorney had successfully argued the federal government was immune from Oakland's lawsuit under the Administrative Procedures Act, which sets out how U.S. agencies develop and issue regulations.
