Judge Rules City Councilor Was Biased in Skybox Vote


A judge has ruled that Westbrook City Councilor Dorothy Aube was biased when she
voted last year against granting licenses to the Skybox Bar and Grill. The
council is set to decide on April 5 whether to grant the owners the licenses it
denied twice last year. David A. Lourie, the lawyer for Skybox owners Allen and
Lynn Moore, said they were denied their request for an injunction to prevent
Aube from voting on the licenses. But he said that if Aube's vote produces a tie
or a majority vote to deny the licenses, the Moores will have grounds to appeal.
