Embattled zoning board member asks judge to vacate scathing ruling

December 13, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Embattled Zoning Board member Allen Rivers wants a Superior Court judge to vacate a recent ruling in which he was branded “arrogant and offensive,” saying the jurist was improperly denied all the facts when he issued the decision.

Rivers has hired high-profile lawyer Robert G. Flanders to press the motion before Associate Superior Court Justice Daniel Procaccini. Flanders is a former associate justice of the state Supreme Court but is just as well known these days as the court-appointed receiver who led Central Falls through the state’s only municipal bankruptcy.
