On Tuesday, June 26, 2018, the Supreme Court upheld President Trump’s travel ban.

This week in State of Arizona v. Rodney Christopher Jones, the Arizona Court of Appeals held in a 2-1 decision that marijuana concentrates do not fall under the protections of the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act (AMMA). The court determined that the AMMA, by not specifically including a form of extracted resin, namely Hashish, within its description of marijuana, adopts a distinction between marijuana and its concentrates that the Arizona Supreme Court made in the seventies. See State v. Bollander, 110 Ariz. 84 (1973).  Read More on Court Decision Here >

Newman, which had refused to infer a tipper's intent to benefit a tippee in the absence of a meaningfully close relationship and a pecuniary or similarly valuable benefit in exchange for the tip.    Read More Court's Decision Here >

May 21, 2018), the Delaware Court of Chancery denied a motion for reargument of its earlier decision setting the appraisal value of the shares of Aruba Networks, Inc. (“Aruba” or the “Company”) at the time of its acquisition by Hewlett-Packard Company (“HP”).  Although the merger agreement offered $24.67 per share of the Company, and the Company ultimately suggested that the fair value of the Company’s shares was $19.75, the Court of Chancery set the fair value of the Company’s shares at $17.13.    Read More on Court's Decisions Here >
