Lawsuit targets Pigeon Forge liquor vote


PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (AP) — A group opposed to allowing liquor to be sold by the drink in Pigeon Forge has filed a lawsuit against the Sevier County Election Commission seeking to void the results of a referendum on the issue that passed this month.

The lawsuit was filed by Concerned Churches and Citizens of Pigeon Forge last week, according to The Mountain Press. The lawsuit seeks to void the Nov. 6 referendum over complaints made to the election commission about the referendum that passed by 100 votes.

The lawsuit said some voters didn’t get the referendum on their ballots and some people who did not live in the city’s limits voted on the referendum.

Administrator of Elections Ronee Flynn said officials are investigating the complaints but are not doing a recount.
