  1. The Charge – OWI (Accident and 17 nanograms of THC) Set for Trial Thursday, March 18, 2021 at 8:00 am. We arrived at the Roscommon District Court House and were prepared for a 2-day jury trial. We had been preparing for weeks prior for this ongoing case from two years ago (March 2019) that the prosecutor insisted on pursuing. The Complaint The Complaint against our client was an alleged OWI Operating While Intoxicated/ Under the Influence or a Controlled Substance. As with all OWI cases, we would also need to defend the lesser included charges of (Operating While Impaired). ( lin
  2. Komorn Law is proud to report a significant and relevant case victory directly related to our recent Michigan Court of Appeals Opinion win in the People v. Thue case where as a registered medical marijuana patient cannot be penalized for consuming medical marihuana while on probation. The Client Issue Our client was charged with violating his probation for allegedly testing positive for “Marihuana” on 2 occasions. The allegations were based upon a urine test which both indicated the metabolite of Delta-9 THC, Carboxy -11/ COOH-11. Our client was certified as a medical marihuana pati
  3. Is it ? For the last 13 years of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act (“MMMA”), patients on probation have asked that simple question. Relying on the simple plain language in the act that protects a medical marijuana patient from denial of any right or privilege (probation), as well as protection from penalty in ANY MANNER, as long as they followed the medical marijuana laws and rules. Until now, it was up to each individual courtroom to decide the patients fate. The judges, prosecutors, probation officers and drug testing labs decided which medicines a probationer could use. In some citi
  4. The Biden DOJ took the side of the IRS in the marijuana 280E tax arguement that state-legal cannabis businesses CAN be investigated by the IRS for probable violations of Section 280E of the tax code. It is believed to be one of the first times the U.S. Department of Justice under the new administration has filed an opinion in a marijuana court case. The Feb 2021 release of the filing was made by DOJ attorneys, led by acting Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar. “That is precisely the federal government’s position and has been for many years,” Thorburn said – an attorney representin
  5. On Oct. 12, Whitmer signed House Bills 4980-4985 and 5120 into law to expand and simplify the state’s criminal record expungement process. The bills will take effect April, 11, 2021. The new law will expand the number and types of convictions that qualify for expungement. Michigan is also working to establish a system to automatically expunge eligible felonies and misdemeanors after certain periods of time, but that still has some time before becoming active. What’s expungement? Expungement seals criminal convictions from the general public, including employers and landlor
  6. AP) — Judges can’t prevent people from using medical marijuana while on probation for a crime, the Michigan Court of Appeals said. Anyone holding a state-issued medical marijuana card is immune to possible penalties, the appeals court said, 3-0. The court, however, cautioned that the decision does not apply to the recreational use of marijuana, which was approved by voters in 2018. Michael Thue was barred from using medical marijuana while on probation for a year in a road rage incident in the Traverse City area. A District Court judge said the marijuana ban was the policy of Circu
  7. Registered patients previously barred from using medical marijuana while on probation may now light up, the state Court of Appeals ruled Thursday. “This opinion says the law is the law,” said Komorm, who represented the appellant in the case, “and we’re going to make the ruling that the Medical Marijuana Act and the card associated with the patient protect them from … penalty of any kind.” It’s taken 13 years, but Michigan courts are finally fully recognizing the rights instilled by the 2008 voter-passed Medical Marijuana Act, said Farmington Hills-based defense attorney. In Komorn

  12. What is a Show Up – Cause It’s Not a Line up A showup, like a lineup, is a form of eyewitness identification. At a showup, a witness or victim is usually shown one person rather than a group of people. Whereas lineups almost always take place in police stations, showups may happen in a police station or in the field or even at the crime scene. A crime-scene showup is especially likely when the police capture a suspect shortly after a crime has occurred. One for Two: Using Both a Showup and a Lineup Police will require a suspect to participate in both a showup and a lineup. They migh

  15. Occasionally at a law firm the weirdest laws are encountered during research. These are amongst many laws that are written so baffling and open ended that the narrative can be twisted anyway required to get a win by the prosecution. A well-seasoned attorney knows how to utilize this for better positioning to defend their client. So choosing your attorney will be one of the most important decisions in your defense case. Finding one that you can believe in requires research. Here are some laws still on the books in Michigan that have turned up during research. BLASPHEMY IS STILL ILLE
