03/30/17 - Miami Beach's new minimum wage law, which aims to raise the citywide wage to $13.31 by 2021, is struck down in court. The Florida Retail Federation, Florida Restaurant & Lodging Ass. and Florida Chamber of Commerce filed suit in December over the city ordinance, arguing it is preempted by state law. Judge Peter Lopez invalidated the ordinance, ruling in favor of State law and the business groups. Miami Beach's lead counsel, Robert Rosenwald, said the city will file an immediate appeal.
