Business owner wants Sen. Doyle found in contempt of court Lawmaker again falling behind on his payments PAWTUCKET – Sen. Jamie Doyle is heading back to court, once again accused of falling behind on his required payments to a local busi- nesswoman. Melissa Bruno, owner of Scituate- based Phoenix Administrators, told The Breeze the last $200 payment she received from Doyle was on May 11. That puts him three months behind, or $600 owed imme- diately and thousands more in debt still out- standing. "I wish I could say that he consistently paid up to that point, but the truth is the payments were very seldom paid on time, and then only after my attorney sent Doyle's attorney a reminder email," she said.
