Judge: Couple accused of growing pot on Governors Island has right to depose landlord who tipped police

LACONIA A Belknap County Superior Court judge reversed his own ruling yesterday and determined that the landlord of the man whose Governors Island home was targeted by state police in a marijuana raid must make herself available to him for a deposition and could possibly testify at his trial. The defense argues that she was acting as an agent of the police because after her first visit, she allegedly contacted them and they told her to return to the home with a witness, which he said is a warrant-less search.
