The move comes the day after a 2-1 ruling from a panel of Illinois Appellate Court justices ruled Emanuel did not meet state provisions mandating Chicago mayoral candidates have to live in the city for at least a year prior to the election. The ruling overturned a previous Chicago Board of Elections decision that found Emanuel had in fact met the requirements.
