BAR HARBOR - The former Bar Harbor Police Chief who was let go from the department back in September has filed a lawsuit against the town.
The council voted 5-2 back in February denying Nathan Young's public appeal of the town manager's decision to terminate his employment.
Young was accused of drunk driving and was allegedly found hunched over his steering wheel back in September.
Monday Young and his attorney Gregg Frame filed suit with the Maine Supreme Court.
"We think there was a lack of objectivity and some bias by the town council," Frame said in a phone interview. "Therefore we found it necessary to file a complaint, because we didn't get the result we wanted from the town council."
Frame says support for young's lawsuit is rising, saying many believe the decision by the council was erroneous.
