Coming on the heels of Robert Pooler's lawsuit against the Colorado Springs Police Department, is this story from the Littleton Independent: Jake Dovenspike and Delbert Sgaggio, co-owners of Colorado Springs-based center A Cut Above, are suing the city of Littleton over a center they previously operated in the city.
[The owners] are contractually obligated to pay $16,800 on a property they leased at 2690 West Main St., according to the lawsuit. Dovenspike and Sgaggio, who closed the business after the Littleton Licensing Authority’s May 12 decision, are also seeking an injunction to reopen.
“They were misled because they were told they were among the select few to get a license, then after that they were told they weren’t,” said Kevin Donovan, an attorney representing A Cut Above.
A Feb. 5 letter to A Cut Above from City Clerk Wendy Heffner says the city manager had determined that the center was one of the first four medical marijuana centers in the city to become operational.
