LACONIA — Seven months after efforts to stage a multi-artist rock concert as part of Motorcycle Week went belly up, a judge has ordered the organizer to pay a city woman for working during the event.
On Jan. 9, Chief Justice Tina Nadeau, sitting in Belknap County Superior Court, approved an order that Janelle Martinez be paid $705 in wages, $100 in court costs and 36 cents in interest. The judgment was award against Mike Trainor, Vesslar Global Partners Inc., P.O. Box 7045, Gilford.
On Sept. 19, the New Hampshire Department of Labor found that Trainor, who organized and promoted Laconiafest, was liable for Martinez' wage claim. In October, the Department of Labor notified Martinez that if Trainor failed to
comply with their order to send payment to the state within 20 days, they would forward information about how she could file an appeal with the Superior Court to enforce their decision.
Martinez filed a request with the court to enforce the Department of Labor's decision on Dec. 23, after Trainor failed to challenge the decision. Trainor must return the writ to the court no later than July 8, 2017, with a record of his payment.
If he fails to comply, he could be held in contempt of court and jailed until he settles the debt.
