DETROIT (AP) — The city of Detroit is urging a judge to allow the certification of last week's election results to go forward.

Attorney David Fink says any halt to the process would empower the “right-wing fire” that's trying to cast doubt on the election.

A lawsuit claims Republican challengers were removed from the TCF Center in Detroit while absentee ballots were being processed. The court filing also alleges other irregularities.

Attorney David Kallman wants a judge to order an audit of Detroit’s vote and suspend any certification of election results by Wayne County until the work is done. Judge Timothy Kenny says he will decide by Friday.
