Court expansion: Ferndale courthouse too small for pot case

Posted By on Wed, Oct 20, 2010 at 4:10 PM

How big is this medical marijuana thing? Well, in the case of an alleged dispensary busted by the Oakland County Sheriff, the Ferndale courthouse is too small to seat the nine defendants and their attorneys at the table for the upcoming case. Linda Carroll, the public information officer for the court, confirmed that the court will rent another building, at taxpayers’ expense, for the trial. When we checked recently, it wasn’t clear where that would be. Carroll said that they were considering a room in the Kulick Community Center on Livernois Street, but they were also looking at the law library of the Oakland County Circuit Court. When things get big, I guess you just have to get bigger.
