The High Times report goes on to reveal

Stacy Hostetter is an associate attorney at the Law Offices of Omar Figueroa, a prominent cannabis legal firm. She flew to San Diego from Northern California to appear in court on behalf of the National Cannabis Bar Association (NCBA). The NCBA plans to file an amicus (“friend of the court”) brief in support of a ruling from the bench that upholds attorney-client privilege.

Before the proceedings, Hostetter explained the goals of her trip.

“I’m hoping that the judge will be discussing what she wants briefed with regards to attorney-client privilege,” she said. “There’s a question about how that works and what the process should be moving forward in this case. It’s nice to be able to get an idea of where she stands preliminarily, that way we can address her specific concerns.”
