Mike Duggan to fight for spot on Detroit mayoral ballot in appeals court

(WXYZ) - Mike Duggan will make his argument in appeals court Monday as to why his name should be put back on the Detroit's mayoral ballot.

A judge made the decision to remove Duggan's name last week, saying he missed a voter registration requirement.

A decision could be made as early as Monday, after Duggan makes his argument.

Candidates are required to be registered to vote in Detroit for at least a year in order to be eligible to run for mayor.

Duggan moved to Detroit and registered as a voter on April 16 2012. He filed to run for mayor on April 2, 2013; two weeks to early.

The deadline to file to run for mayor wasn't until May 14.
