Detroit mayor's critics lose election challenges

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -- The Michigan appeals court has swept aside challenges to the election of Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan.
 
Duggan won last summer's primary election as a write-in candidate and was elected mayor in November. Another candidate, Tom Barrow, and other critics sued, alleging a variety of violations, from Duggan's eligibility to the perforation on absentee ballots.
 
The appeals court unanimously affirmed decisions by a Wayne County judge in favor of the Duggan campaign. The opinion was released Wednesday.
 
Duggan's critics can claim a mild victory. The appeals court turned down the campaign's request for financial penalties. The campaign considered the litigation to be "frivoulous."
