Former Attorney General May Lose Law License

Marc Dann, Ohio’s former attorney general, has now been accused of misconduct relating to his own criminal charges in 2008 that cost him his office.

Dann was accused of sexually harassing two staff members. After resigning from his office, he continued practicing law, until the recent claims that he has used over a thousand dollars from lobbyists for his own personal interests, such as a flight on a privately chartered jet. He has also been accused of using campaign money for the salaries of two staff members.

Although Dann did not plead guilty, he admitted that evidence implied that he was guilty. It has not yet been decided if he will lose his law license.

Pennsylvania Teacher Suspended for Blogs

A 30 year-old high school teacher was recently suspended after blogs she had written about her students surfaced. In her blogs, the teacher described her students in a negative light and made taunting remarks about anything from their clothing to their future careers.

Students, parents, and the school’s administration were unhappy with the blogs and felt that they were unnecessarily cruel. The blogs did not mention students by name and the school had no policy on teachers using the Internet.

The woman is currently not in jeopardy of losing her teaching license, and she is fighting her suspension.

Grand Rapids denies lone applicant for medical marijuana grower’s license

Several months ago, the city of Grand Rapids passed a statute to require medical marijuana growers to procure licenses as home-based businesses. However, since that time, the city has not issued a single license. The new ordinance requires that the businesses obtain a $224 license and undergo regular inspections. The lone applicant was denied by city officials.

Some critics say that the terms of the new ordinance are too restrictive and that it was designed with the intent to drive these types of businesses out of the city. The state is home to 45,800 medical marijuana patients.
