MEDFORD, Ore. — Mary Jane’s Attic in Medford will be staying open, at least for now.
On Tuesday, its owner and lawyer filed motions to get their business license back because a judge revoked it. Last week a Jackson County Circuit Court judge upheld the Medford City Council’s decision to invalidate that business license because it said Mary Jane’s Attic/Basement was engaging in unlawful activities that violated federal law.
However, the lawyer representing Mary Jane’s Attic, Leland Berger, said there is still hope for the business. He said the judge issued an order, and that order isn’t final until there is another paper filed in the lawsuit called a judgment.
“We’re seeking additional findings… we’re seeking a correction… we’re asking them to withdraw that part of it… that is an advisory opinion, and advisory opinions are not allowed under the law,” said Berger.
Berger said nothing can be done until the final judgment is made, and at the end of the judgment, a decision could be made to appeal.
Berger said Mary Jane’s Attic is not prepared to make that decision until after the motions are ruled on and the court’s final judgment is made.
The final decision is expected next month, but until then, Mary Jane’s Attic said its doors will stay open.
While it will not be selling medical marijuana to cardholders, it will continue to sell clothing and other locally manufactured items.
Owner Marlene Nuckols said the past few months have been a whirlwind of emotions, but that the business will keep up its fight to take care of its patients.
