Mayor's attorney files appeal against recall

TOLEDO (WTOL) - There are new details involving the effort to recall Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner.

A private attorney for the mayor has filed an appeal in Lucas County Common Pleas Court. It claims the petitions filed by the Take Back Toledo Group were not properly worded, and they're lacking a sufficient number of valid signatures.

There is no word yet on a hearing date for this case.
