The Newport City Council met last night and according to the Daily News,  voted unanimously to support the lawsuit alleging the upcoming referendum on the expanded gambling at Newport Grand is unconstitutional. The lawsuit calls on the court to stop or nullify the election due to the General Assembly passing a law that calls for one statewide referendum and does not provide for a separate local referendum in Newport.  At the initial conference in September, a Superior Court Judge recommended that the city should be party to the suit, because it has direct involvement in the matter.
