Livermore Seeks Court Injunction To Shut Down Pot Shop – Contracostatimes.com

The city, he said, is awaiting a response from the court on the restraining order and expects a hearing soon on a temporary injunction. Club operators, he said, also have criminal charges pending for marijuana possession and distribution.
