6:04 am
a legal development in its investigation. while the city attorney won't elaborate on the expected announcement, we do know the city served subpoenas on millennium's developer back in september. at issue here is whether the tower's sinking problems had been disclosed to potential buyers back in 2009. multiple owners have told us they were not told about the problems until earlier this year. if that is true, millennium partners could be prosecuted under civil law for withholding information from potential buyers. our investigation initially triggered city hearings on that high-priced towers. if you'd like to see our serious stories, check out our home page. medical marijuana supporters are celebrating after a three-year battle to shut a historic dispensary goes up in smoke. federal prosecutors 2342013 sued to close berkeley patient's group. it opened back in 1999, claims to be the oldest continuously running pot club in the nation.
