Moorestown Mall, which wants to serve alcohol at restaurants it plans to open in its dying shopping center, may need a drink now that it has a big legal hassle.
William E. Cox, a Moorestonian and Center City lawyer, is suing the town to block a ballot question that would allow the dry community to become wet.
The suit has something to do with the "trains, airplanes and boats" language in the question, and the fact that a similar question (minus the mention of choo choos and all that) was posed to voters only 4 years ago. State law says you must wait 5 years, apparently because the issue frays everyone's nerves.
The Mall, and its supporters, insist the question is different enough to escape the 5-year rule.
