Judge orders LaconiaFest organizer to pay $805.36 to woman who worked botched festival
LACONIA — A judge has ordered the organizer of an attempted multi-artist rock concert to pay a city woman for her work during the event.
Just seven months after Laconiafest, Chief Justice Tina Nadeau approved an order that Mike Trainor, of Vesslar Global Partners Inc. who organized and promoted the event, pay Janelle Martinez $705 in wages, $100 in court costs and 36 cents in interest, according to The Laconia Daily Sun.
Martinez was notified on Sept. 19 that if Trainor failed to comply with their order to send payment to the state within 20 days, she would be eligible to file an appeal with the Superior Court to enforce the decision.
On Dec. 23, after Trainor failed to challenge the decision, Martinez filed a request with the court. Trainor must return the order 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.
