The Pullman City Council will vote next week on adopting a moratorium on medical marijuana community gardens. City Attorney Laura McAloon advised the council to take that action Tuesday, saying many other Washington cities, such as Issaquah and Tacoma, have passed such moratoriums.

Appeals court upholds vehicular homicide convictions

An appeals court on Tuesday upheld vehicular homicide convictions against Frederick Russell, who killed three Washington State University students and seriously injured three others in a drunken crash a decade ago on the highway that connects Moscow and Pullman. However, the Division III Court of Appeals will return the case to Superior Court Judge David Frazier so that Russell can be given credit for the time he was jailed in Ireland as he fought extradition to the U.S. to stand trial. Russell, whose father was the head of WSU’s criminal justice program, had fled to Ireland to avoid prosecution.
