Duggan expected to discuss future plans at 10 a.m.

DETROIT (WJBK) -

Mike Duggan is expected to lay out his future plans Thursday, one day after the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled that he doesn't meet residency requirements to run for mayor and his name shouldn't appear on the ballot for the Aug. 6 primary elections.

Duggan, considered among the leading candidates to succeed Detroit Mayor Dave Bing, had appealed after a lower court ruled that he hadn't lived in Detroit a full year as required by city rules before filing to run. The appellate court agreed in a 2-1 ruling.

The challenge was filed by mayoral candidate Tom Barrow. Both he and Duggan are Democrats, though the election is officially nonpartisan. Bing has decided not to seek re-election.
