Judge Halts Medical Marijuana Consulting Business

By Beacon Staff

MISSOULA – A Missoula judge has issued a restraining order preventing three former employees of the Montana Caregivers Network from operating a medical marijuana consulting business as their lawsuit against the network proceeds.

District Judge Dusty Deschamps on Friday granted the restraining order, but refused Jason Christ’s request to dismiss the lawsuit.

Tiffany Klang, John Phillips and Nicole Harrington sued Christ in August alleging he falsified some applications for medical marijuana cards, used company funds for personal expenses and drove a company van while smoking marijuana. The three then started 406 Alternative Care Consultants.

The Missoulian reports Christ required employees to sign a nondisclosure agreement that applies in a 500-mile radius for five years from the date they leave Montana Caregivers.
