Pittsburgh’s paid sick leave law suffered another legal loss Wednesday, this time when Commonwealth Court rejected the city’s appeal of a lower court’s ruling. But the fight isn’t over yet. A spokesperson for Mayor Bill Peduto said Pittsburgh plans to appeal the ruling, which found the city overstepped its second-class status by dictating the actions and obligations of a private business. Will the Pa. Supreme Court agree? Stay tuned.
The numbers aren’t certified yet, but it appears Allegheny County had the lowest turnout in years on Tuesday. Not that turnout in off-year primaries has been so great over the past decade. The Incline made a chart that shows turnout — total, Democrats and Republicans — in odd-year primaries since 2007. See it and weep.
The Penguins got crushed Wednesday night, losing 5-1 after falling behind 4-0 just past the halfway point of the first period. Marc-Andre Fleury, who just yesterday was being touted as an MVP candidate in the playoffs, was dreadful, letting in four goals on nine shots before he was pulled in favor of Matt Murray. Making his first appearance in the playoffs since getting hurt in warmups of Game 1 vs. Columbus, Murray saved 19 of 20 shots he faced, albeit with the game out of hand. Mike Sullivan said he hasn't decided who will start Game 4 yet, and Fleury said no matter the score, goalies need to have a short memory. But will this be the reason to bench Fleury in favor of Murray?
