Things are rough on the legal front for Team Quest’s Oregon branch, as both Matt Lindland and Chael Sonnen are embroiled in court cases. Sonnen is awaiting sentencing for his guilty plea in a real estate fraud/money laundering case, while Lindland is currently in dispute with Dan Henderson over the ownership rights to Team Quest.
Now, according to the Willamette Week, “The Law” can add another lawsuit to his schedule, as Gonzalo Aldana Gamboa is taking him to task in the Multnomah County Circuit Court for allegedly stealing his six marijuana plants.
Gamboa alleges that Lindland took his plants–which were being grown on Lindland’s property under his permission for Gamboa’s licensed medical marijuana patients–from the grow site to his shed under the pretense of curing them, but refused Gamboa access to the plants when he returned later for harvest.
Gamboa is seeking $122,880 from Lindland, based on the street price for the weed, which his lawyer, William Macke, admitted could be difficult.
“It may be a little bit of a long shot legally,” said Macke.
Lindland last appeared in action in a failing effort against Robbie Lawler, getting knocked out in the first round of their December meeting.
