The controller show action is:

 def show
    @motion = Motion.find(params[:id])
    if is_showable?(@current_user, @motion)
      (@vote = @motion.votes.find_by_shortname(@current_user.shortname)) 
if is_votable?(@current_user, @motion)

      respond_to do |format|
        format.html # show.html.erb
        format.xml  { render :xml => @motion }
    flash[:error] = "You are not in that group."
    redirect_to motions_path
