Greim Shares Insight on Constitutional Law in Minimum Wage Article
Graves Garrett Partner Eddie Greim was recently tapped by the Kansas City Business Journal to provide insight on the latest developments in the minimum wage dispute.
As an attorney who specializes in constitutional and election law, Greim was able to shed some light on the legal options available to the participants of the minimum wage debate. According to Greim, current law would nullify any attempts made by the Kansas City Council or other citywide efforts to raise the minimum wage. The only legally viable path forward at this juncture would be to file a statewide initiative petition and put the question to a vote in the next election, which would most likely be the November 2016 general election.
In addition to his shared knowledge in the Kansas City Business Journal, Greim was recently sought out by local television station NBC 41 Action News in its coverage of a political retaliation lawsuit filed against Jackson County Sheriff Mike Sharp.
Greim has been dubbed a “go-to lawyer” on policy issues and has extensive experience in handling constitutional challenges on controversial issues, including trial and appellate challenges to the Missouri Court Plan. He has argued before the Missouri Supreme Court on four separate occasions.
