The tug-of-war over Central Falls heads to mediation

Jan 16, 2013

(PROVIDENCE, RI) A Superior Court judge has ordered the two sides wrangling over control of Central Falls to take the matter up in mediation.

An attorney for three city council members says the time limit on receivership is up. But the receiver says state law allows him to decide when it’s time to leave.

Theodore Orson, the attorney for the city’s receiver, says the receiver wants to resolve the matter quickly and supports mediation. Orson says mediation will likely begin in early February.
