The city of Bothel, WA was ordered to pay nearly $40,000 to a marijuana grower in a civil lawsuit stemming from the illegal search and seizure of property from his home during an investigation into a marijuana-grow operation.

U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman ordered the settlement on Wednesday as a result of a civil lawsuit filed by marijuana grower Eric Scott Levine against Snohomish County and the City of Bothell.

Levine will receive a $25,000 settlement for the illegal search and seizure of property from his home, and an additional $14,700 in attorney fees.
