William Crosby files federal lawsuit against Mono County, Town of Mammoth

William Crosby, a Mammoth Lakes resident who earlier this year filed a claim for damages against Mono County and the Town of Mammoth Lakes following his arrest for an alleged medical marijuana violation, has now filed a lawsuit against both entities in federal district court.

Crosby was arrested in December, 2010. He has maintained since then that he was following the medical marijuana laws. The county rejected his claims for damages last month.

A court spokesman Monday confirmed that Crosby had filed the lawsuit with the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California, and that it had been filed on May 31.
