On Wednesday, January 24, a federal judge denied the State of Maine’s request to put a hold on the release of $3 million in federal job training funds to Murray Plumb & Murray client Coastal Counties Workforce, Inc. (CCWI)
The decision to deny the state’s request comes after a January 3 ruling that ordered the release of the federal job training funds to CCWI. Based in Brunswick, Maine, CCWI filed the suit in October claiming that the decision to withhold the federal funds has denied necessary services to job seekers in need.
U.S. District Court Judge John Woodcock concluded that any further delay in releasing the funds could cause “irreparable harm” to CCWI, according to the Portland Press Herald.
