LANSING (WKZO) -- Opponents of Michigan's emergency manager law scored a victory in court Thursday. The Michigan Court of Appeals has ruled that the question to repeal the law can remain on the November ballot.
Last week, a three-judge panel ruled that the question should go on the ballot, however a technical violation regarding the wrong font size on the petition, was brought to light and threatened to keep the proposal off the ballot.
In an unusual move, the panel asked that all 28-appeals court judges be polled to see whether they agreed to form a special seven judge panel to re-examine the earlier ruling. The full panel rejected that step Thursday.
