Rich Cordray Loses a Big Prevailing Wage Case
From Barbara Carmen in The Dispatch:
Prevailing-wage lawsuit tossed out
Law wasn’t in effect, county judge says
Ohio has lost a prevailing-wage lawsuit that the attorney general’s office filed against a large developer just before Labor Day.
Franklin County Common Pleas Judge David E. Cain told the state that it didn’t have a case.
“Simply put, the improvements to the property in this case were performed on privately owned property and paid for with private funds,” Cain wrote in a decision issued Monday.
Attorney General Richard Cordray had sued Anchor Construction and its affiliates on Sept. 4. He alleged that the developers failed to pay 65 workers union-scale wages, and he asked for nearly $1.1 million in back wages and penalties.
Marc Dann may be out of office, but ham-handed lawsuits filed on behalf of Democrat interests in the AG’s office are apparently alive and well.
