Mike Duggan waiting for appeals court ruling
DETROIT (AP) - The Michigan appeals court says it will take the case of Mike Duggan, a candidate for Detroit mayor who was bounced from the primary ballot.
Duggan is asking the court to overturn a decision that keeps him off the August ballot. A Wayne County judge said he doesn't qualify because he wasn't registered long enough as a city voter.
A three-judge panel says it will take the case Monday without hearing any arguments. It's not clear if a decision will be made that day.
Duggan, a former hospital executive, was considered one of the leading candidates to succeed Mayor Dave Bing, who is not seeking re-election.
Rival candidate Tom Barrow wants the Michigan Supreme Court to immediately settle the matter, bypassing the appeals court.
