READ: Arizona Supreme Court Unanimously Rejects Chambers of Commerce Challenge To Minimum Wage Increase

With the formal opinion to follow, the Arizona Supreme Court unanimously made quick work rejecting a post-election challenge to the initiative increasing Arizona's minimum wage and requiring paid sick time.

Proposition 206 passed easily. Rather than waging a vocal campaign before November 8, the Arizona Chamber of Commerce (and other Chambers) decided to try a legal challenge after the fact.

The newly-expanded Supreme Court did not take kindly to the effort, and issued a brief order at 4:50pm (without its usual practice - for opinions - of notifying attorneys in advance that a decision is coming the next day).

Oral argument had just been held this past Thursday.
