A Washington state judge has struck part of the voter-approved $15 an hour minimum wage measure for airport workers in SeaTac.
Darvas said the state Legislature has given municipalities like the Port of Seattle "exclusive jurisdiction" over their operations.
Supporters of the measure say they will file an appeal to the state Supreme Court.
Last month voters in the city of SeaTac narrowly approved the measure, which would apply to around 6,000 workers at the airport and related industries, like hotels and rental car companies.
