Ruling: Last Place on Earth to be closed for another year

Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The latest ruling from Saint Louis County Court will keep the doors of the Last Place on Earth head shop closed for another year.

On Tuesday, Sixth Judicial District Chief Judge Shaun Floerke issued a permanent injunction in response to Duluth's nuisance suit against the head shop.

It states that owner Jim Carlson cannot reopen his store at 120 East Superior Street, nor can he sell synthetics out of any other location in the city.

On Monday, Carlson's attorney Randall Tigue asked for his client's release from Sherburne County Jail, adding that Carlson has no intention of selling synthetics.

In October, Carlson was found guilty on 51 counts related to synthetic drug sales.

In Monday's motion, Tigue argues there's substantial reason to believe that Carlson will be granted a new trial.

A sentencing date has not yet been set.
