DEA lawyers file their final document post motions

 DEA lawyers file their final document seeking to counter arguments made by Prof. Craker’s lawyers requesting a hearing to rebut new evidence and false claims made in DEA Acting Administrator Leonhart’s January 14, 2009, Final Order. DEA’s Final Order rejected DEA Administrative Law Judge Bittner’s February 12, 2007, recommendation that it would be in the public interest for DEA to issue Prof. Craker, UMass Amherst, a license for a medical marijuana production facility. DEA’s Final Order goes into effect May 1, unless a hearing or opportunity for written testimony is granted.
