Minnesota Supreme Court Strikes Down Proposed Minneapolis Ballot Initiatives

931dca-20100315-minn-supreme-court

Thursday morning I appeared on KTLK’s Justice & Drew to discuss the recent decisions of the Minnesota Supreme Court which overturned two lower court rulings that allowed two proposed Minneapolis City Charter amendments on the November 8 general election ballot.  One proposed amendment related to requiring a $15 minimum wage within the City of Minneapolis, and the other amendment would require police officers to carry liability insurance.

Click here to listen to our discussion of the Court’s decisions.  For reference, I am also postingthe Court’s order in the Vasseur case (dealing with the $15 minimum wage) and the Bicking case (dealing with the police liability insurance) here.
