A Wayne County judge says certification of election ballots will go forward on schedule. He issued the decision Friday on whether or not to order a delay in certifying election results.

That delay request came from plaintiffs who are challenging how ballot counting was handled in Detroit.

President Donald Trump’s campaign has also filed a lawsuit in the western Michigan U.S. District Court to attempt to stop the certification of the state’s election results.

The ACLU of Indiana is challenging a new law that further criminalizes panhandling, saying the measure is unconstitutional and that panhandling is protected by the First Amendment.

The new state law makes it a misdemeanor to ask for money within 50 feet of any place where financial transactions are made, including parking meters. That effectively bans panhandling in downtown Indianapolis and other large cities.
