Michigan: Troy City Council refuses to seek AG's opinion on date of recall
The Troy City Council voted at not to seek the State Attorney General's opinion on whether it needs to hold a special replacement mayoral election in February (as per state law) or if it could wait till November (as per Troy's charter).
The article notes that there is a chance of a lawsuit -- I'd put the odds at approximately 100%. Just guessing, but we've seen this play out in Tennessee, and there's probably a very good chance that the state law wins out.
