SCOTUS Denies Cert: MN Ruling on Medical Marijuana Stands

June 21, 2022

In an Order issued today, the United States Supreme Court denied the Petitions for Certiorari in the Bierbach v. Digger's Polaris and United Fire Group and Musta v. Mendota Heights Dental cases.

The claimants in these cases sought SCOTUS review of the determinations of the Minnesota Supreme Court denying reimbursement for medical marijuana in workers’ compensation matters. Attorney Sue Conley shared, “Minnesota law stands. Workers’ compensation employers and insurers will not be required to reimburse claimants for medical marijuana expenses.”
