Authorities investigate mysterious death

Posted by wlpo on April 12, 2015

Authorities in Cook County are investigating the death of the CEO of a company involved in a lawsuit with the state of Illinois over the company’s failed bid for a medical marijuana-farming permit. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that 51-year-old Andrew James was found unresponsive in his Kenilworth home on Thursday. Authorities are awaiting test results after an autopsy was inconclusive.

James headed PM Rx. A spokesman for the company said it would meet soon to discuss how to proceed without James as CEO. PM Rx filed a lawsuit alleging it lost its bid for a permit because the Illinois Department of Agriculture broke rules when awarding permits.

Last month, a judge ruled that a temporary restraining order delaying the other company from going forward can remain in place.
