TGIG and the Marlon Tinana Trust will appear in District Court before Judge Valerie Adair on June 13 hoping for answers to the appearance of corruption. The Las Vegas Tribune has a special place for corruption within the government of Nevada. TGIG and the Marlon Tinana Trust were in the best position to do business together when TGIG applied for a marijuana dispensary in a location owned by Tinana Trust, however everything fell apart when
TGIG tried to pull a fast one on the Marlon Tinana Trust.
After the Special Use Permit had been approved, the lease signed, payments made, and improvements done, TGIG took action to approach the landlord and attempt a re-negotiation.
This action would violate a binding contract and severely damage the landlord’s rights, which had been mutually agreed to.
The landlord, Marlon Tinana, of the Marion Tinana Trust, determined that contract law and a binding agreement meant something to them when they negotiated the lease in good faith and it should mean something to TGIG as well.
Good character is always assumed when a lessee arranges for a Special Use Permit, which are limited and are considered a privilege. Nevertheless, TGIG executed a lease agreement to rent a location at 4640 Paradise Road to open a marijuana dispensary directly across the street from the Marlon Tinana property leased at 4633 Paradise Road.
TGIG then entered a scheme with the County Commission to move their already approved location. And at that point TGIG brought up a name with political claw, John Ritter, to exercise his magic with the County commissioners and get his way. It is interesting to this paper that Mr. Ritter’s name does not appear on any prior applications or the Use Permit Approval. A Special Use Permit to dispense marijuana requires the name of the principal. One cannot get a gambling, or liquor license without disclosure. The facts of these activities raise the corruption antenna of the Las Vegas Tribune. It certainly appears that a scheme occurred to allow the moving of an approved Special Use Permitted location.
The damages to Marlon Tinana will likely amount to millions. The location was approved and allowed to move with the approval of government involvement. This story just now came to the attention of The Las Vegas Tribune. A few inquiries were made to staff investigators and initial reports are raising eyebrows. It seems that the previously undisclosed involvement of Mr. Ritter may have tentacles that have reach. He seems to be well connected and has a reputation of always getting his way.
The involvement of well-connected individuals indicates juice, which makes for interesting stories. This newspaper’s reporters will be covering the hearing scheduled for June 13 and we will look forward to reporting the results.
