DETROIT (WKZO) -- A federal judge will decide Friday whether U.S. Representative John Conyers will be allowed on the August 5th ballot. After a hearing Wednesday, U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Leitman said he wanted to make his ruling quickly to allow for appeals to be filed in the case.

Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett has previously ruled that Conyers has not collected enough valid signatures to be placed on the primary ballot. Secretary of State Ruth Johnson is also expected to make her decision on Conyers's appeal of Garrett's ruling Friday.
