Corporation Counsel Says Fall River Dodges 6-Figure Legal Battle

Fall River Corporation Counsel Judge Joseph Macy tells WSAR News that the city of Fall River may have dodged a 6-figure legal battle when the city council refused last week to invoke Section 3-8 of the city's charter that might have attempted to recall Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia ll on a temporary basis, replacing him with an acting mayor. 


Macy gave council a cost estimate had the provisions in Charter Section 3-8 been challenged. He told WSAR News provisions in the charter need to be made clearer from a legal and layman point of view.
