Judge Robert Meadows has denied Damien H. Gilliams’ motion to remove a no-contact order so he can participate in Sebastian City Council meetings and political forums during the upcoming election. Councilman Ed Dodd, who is running for re-election, is on the no-contact order, prohibiting Gilliams from participating in public election events while Dodd is present.
