DETROIT (AP) -- A judge has ordered that Detroit Congressman John Conyers be placed on the August primary ballot.

Conyers has been in Congress since 1965. State election officials Friday declared him ineligible for the ballot because they found problems with some people who gathered signatures for him to run for another term.

But a few hours later, Detroit federal Judge Matthew Leitman issued an injunction ordering that Conyers' name be placed on the ballot.
