TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A judge has thrown out a legal challenge to a law requiring that certain employers in Newe Jersey’s capital city offer workers paid sick leave.

A group of business groups had challenged the city ordinance in Trenton, saying it was vague and means employers in different part of the state have to adhere to different laws.

But Superior Court Judge Mary Jacobson rejected the arguments in a ruling Thursday.

Christopher Gibson, a lawyer for the business groups, tells The Times of Trenton (https://bit.ly/1IlXI2T ) that it has not been decided whether his clients will appeal.

Trenton is one of nine New Jersey cities with a paid sick-leave ordinance. Most have gone into effect in the past year.
