In an Order dated February 1, 2021 Justice of the Superior Court Thomas D. Warren ruled that the “minimum wage provision” is valid and it is effective as of January 1, 2022.  The Court debunked most of the arguments presented by the plaintiffs’ attorneys in a pleading filed last year.

The other plaintiffs in the lawsuit were the Alliance for Addiction and Mental Health Services, Maine Slab, Nosh, Gritty McDuff’s and Play it Again Sports.
