BALTIMORE (AP) — A Baltimore circuit judge will decide Friday whether another challenger for state’s attorney has lived in the city long enough to run.

Both Ivan Bates and Thiru Vignarajah were accused of not continuously living in the city since November 2016 and of keeping primary residences outside of Baltimore. Another judge decided Tuesday that Vignarajah met the residency requirement. Now it’s Bates’ turn.

The Baltimore Sun reports that attorneys for Bates provided tax and utility bills, deeds, car registration, voting records and other documents Thursday to prove he qualified.

Both candidates are challenging incumbent Marilyn Mosby. All are running as Democrats, so the June 26 primary decides the election.
